California Adult College Completion Partnership
REL West has partnered with six higher education institutions in the northern region of California: Shasta College, Sierra College, College of the Siskiyous, the Yuba Community College District, California State University Chico, and California State University Sacramento. The long-term goal of the partnership is to increase the number of adult students who have some college credits, but no degree, who return to college and complete their degrees. The partnership’s coaching and applied research projects will improve supports for the target population and will expand the evidence base on adult degree completion.

Improving Education Outcomes of K–12 Students in Foster Care
REL West has partnered with Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE) leaders to formulate data-driven and evidence-based policy and practice to improve outcomes for students in foster care, starting with school stability and attendance. This partnership’s work will strengthen LACOE’s capacity to use data for decision-making and generate new evidence to improve these outcomes, which can lead to improved academic achievement and, ultimately, to the longer-term goal of lower dropout and higher graduation rates.

This department is charged with developing the district’s capacity to create, support, and sustain school climates that are safe and engaging to optimize student learning, which starts with regular school attendance.
