Parents Taking Action

Are you passionate about wanting great public schools?

We’re working with local partners to drive forward our mission of increasing the number of world-class public schools serving underserved students – including low-income students, students of color, English Learners and students with disabilities.

The need is huge with thousands of students in LA currently stuck in low-performing schools. Innovate Public Schools works to ensure all kids have access to world-class public schools by 1) organizing parents and building their capacity to advocate in the education system, 2) publishing easy-to-understand data and reports and making information accessible for the public, and 3) supporting principals to lead and run excellent public schools through leadership training and coaching.

We will be focusing our work in Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). Currently, we’re focused on connecting with families in southeast LA, Westlake/Pico-Union, and doing citywide work with the African American community on the closing the current opportunity and achievement gaps.

We want to hear from you

Innovate’s organizing team is currently doing a listening campaign of parents all over South Gate, Huntington Park, Cudahy, Maywood, Walnut Park, Bell, Florence-Graham, northern Central Alameda, Westlake and Pico-Union.
