The RISE Model: Reconnecting Students Through Anytime, Anywhere Learning
In Los Angeles County, there are more than 63,000 homeless students. Another 28,000 of the County’s children are in foster care, and close to 20,000 students in Los Angeles are incarcerated. When the team at Da Vinci Schools recognized the lack of adequate educational, social emotional, and material resources for these students, they knew they had to develop a new approach. Da Vinci RISE High School has been designed with the needs of youth experiencing housing instability, the foster care system and/or the juvenile justice system at the forefront. RISE works to provide an empowering education by partnering with service providers, leveraging student voice, and centering the school experience around youth who are most frequently written out of the larger educational narrative.
