Grandiose plans for a total of three students at new 7th grade through high school located at Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Center
-- From "A harassment-free school opens in L.A." by Nicole Santa Cruz, Los Angeles Times 2/1/10
The school, which serves grades seven through 12, is a collaboration between Opportunities for Learning, a charter school with 34 locations across Los Angeles and Orange counties, and Lifeworks, a mentoring program for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth sponsored by the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center.
Currently the satellite campus employs one teacher. Three students will begin instruction in the upcoming weeks.
The school's independent study program is tailored to individual student needs.
Students meet with an instructor twice a week and are expected to complete between four and six hours of work at home each weekday.
School officials will expand the program, which is open to about 40 students, if the need arises. Those officials say they aren't aware of any similar schools in the county.
. . . the educational addition to the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center makes it a "one-stop" shop for services ranging from job placement to housing.
