As California has moved to strengthen and expand dual enrollment, a group of community foundations in the Central Valley has been at the forefront of developing a broad, regional approach supporting dual enrollment as a high-leverage strategy to increase equitable postsecondary attainment. The foundation partners—the Central Valley Community Foundation, the Community Foundation of San Joaquin, the Kern Community Foundation, and the Stanislaus Community Foundation, with funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation—worked together with colleges, K-12 districts and high schools, and community organizations to create a holistic strategy for the region. CLP’s new report, A Deeper Dive: Understanding Dual Enrollment Programs in the Central Valley, mapped the landscape of dual enrollment in the Central Valley and informed their efforts.

In response to AB 705, the English department at City College of San Francisco (CCSF) revised their composition sequence such that all students entering the college are placed into transfer-level English 1A or 1A paired with a two-unit support class. This increased throughput of students by large percentages across all student groups. But when they looked at subgroup data, they still saw persistent equity gaps in completion rates. CLP’s publication, AB 705 and GP: Stories from the Field, describes how CCSF faculty are moving to close those gaps. Read the story.GP Redesign: Foster Youth Transitions at Riverside City College
Read about the work of Riverside City College (RCC) to facilitate seamless transitions for foster youth. CLP’s newest GP Redesign Example profiles how RCC’s Guardian Scholars Learning Community has knit together networks of educational institutions, public agencies, and community-based organizations to support foster youth. Guardian Scholars emphasizes community and makes sure it is a one-stop shop for students, with a dedicated staff person whose working motto is: “I may not have all of the answers, but we’ll find them together.” Download this and other GP Redesign Examples.Laurencia Walker Joins the CLP Team

It is not beyond our power to create a world in which all children have access to a good education. In my travels all over the world, I have come to realize that what distinguishes one child from another is not ability, but access. Access to education, access to opportunity, access to love. -- Nelson Mandela
