  • Our Purpose

    The Access, Equity and Acceleration (AEA) Unit seeks to eliminate inequities while implementing systematic accountabilities for all underserved students and families.  (AEA) collaborates with district staff and educational partners to build and reinforce a coherent vision around Equity to ensure equal access and opportunity is provided to positively impact student academic and social wellness outcomes.  We commit to taking accountability for our words and actions intended to meet the individual needs of all our students.





    AEA Background Overview

    The Access to Equity Gifted Enrichment Program, and the partnerships of the UCLA/LAUSD Collaborative and USC Architecture Lab (A-Lab) are intended to assist with the elimination of barriers associated with academic and opportunity gaps that are present within our society. Each program addresses systemic inequities for African American (AA) students and Standard English Learners (SEL) by providing underserved students with access to high-quality instructional practices and experiences intended to accelerate student learning. Programs further support school leaders, teachers, and parents with professional development designed to enhance knowledge, skills and dispositions needed to increase and accelerate students' individualized academic and social emotional needs.






    Culturally proficient mindsets are cultivated as teachers and school leaders are provided with professional learning opportunities and resources that help them identify asset-based strategies and confront biases.






    The AEA unit approaches all meetings, initiatives, administrative and teaching practices with a lens of equity. We stand up and speak up for our underserved students so they may rise to the high expectations we know they can achieve.
