Fall Lighthouse Gathering


The annual fall Lighthouse convening in Sacramento is always a terrific place to connect with and learn from other leading California Partnership Academies, and this year was no exception. AOAT’s team included seven representatives, and for the first time an administrator joined our contingent. Our Assistant Principal learned firsthand how the CPA grant program is administered by the state, and what requirements govern the academy model and are protected by Ed Code.

Being part of LAUSD is the biggest challenge to AOAT because the large class sizes mandated by the District, and difficulty in maintaining pure classes, are diametrically opposed to the CPA structure. We came away inspired by our conversations with other academies from around California, and renewed our commitment to fight for our students by providing them with the best program possible.
