Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) was one of the nine participating districts in the Linked Learning District Initiative. PUSD has implemented Linked Learning pathways—called College and Career Academies—in all four of their high schools, as well as two alternative education sites (currently, 50% of all high school students are enrolled in a pathway).

Since the end of the District Initiative, ConnectED has collaborated with Envision Learning Partners to support the district’s implementation of a board-approved senior defense of learning. ConnectED continues to support the district’s commitment to instructional equity and improvement through projects such as the Literacy and Math Design Collaboratives, cross-district Learning Walks, and as a key partner of the Learning Policy Institute’s California Performance Assessment Collaborative (CPAC).
