L.A. Unified paves the way for 15,000 students to take community college classes - during their high school day

Los Angeles Times 

It will be easier for L.A. students to take community college classes for free -- while sitting in their high school classrooms. The Los Angeles Unified School District board approved an agreement Tuesday with the Los Angeles Community College District that will let high schools enter partnerships with their local community colleges to offer classes on campus, during the regular school day. The schools hope to serve 15,000 L.A. Unified students a year. "This is truly a partnership," said Board President Steve Zimmer. "We're going to elevate both the amazing work that is already done on our high school and adult campuses, while at the same time creating new opportunities for our students."
