Hi, is there news about the fate of our L.A.C.E.R. program at John Marshall High School? Was officially defunded, but I believe there was a chance of reconsideration/refunding at today's L.A.U.S.D. budget meeting. Anybody aware of what happened?
Amazing opportunity to share your story on a national scale with a major TV network. Please share!

The L.A.C.E.R. Afterschool Programs provides award-winning arts, literacy and recreation activities to thousands of youth in Los Angeles. LACER (Literacy, Arts, Culture, Education and Recreation) Afterschool is an award-winning organization providing arts, academics, and athletics, free, to middle and high school students in Los Angeles.

At LACER we are proud to provide the additional support our students need to overcome challenges they have in the school day. Our academic tutors especially meet our students where they are and help them get to where they need to go. #lacerafterschoolprograms #arts #academics #athletics #losangeles #lausd

BACK TO SCHOOL!

When the schools closed at the height of the COVID-19 Pandemic, LACER Afterschool was first with excellent instructor-created online programming and resources.

A month later, LACER opened an all-new virtual after-school program for all our students, rated one of the TOP FIVE virtual after-school programs in Los Angeles.

By the end of the 2020-21 school year, LACER was running programs on-site and online to support the return to campus, including elementary schools!

Whew!

NOW we're back on campus supporting our students and families at each of our eight schools with our award-winning programming in the visual and performing arts, our in-depth academic programs, and athletic programs for everyone.

Diversity,Equity and Inclusion are core principles of the work we do at @lacerafterschool. Thanks to our planning team for putting together our upcoming workshops. LACER staff will come together with the goal of developing a plan to help students think about, talk about, even do something about, the issues they are confronted with today.

Our plan has three steps ~ First, we meet in small groups to brainstorm ideas about what we can do in our classes to promote equity and inclusion; second, instructors return to their classes and try out at least one of these ideas; finally, we return as a group to debrief our work and plan our next steps. #diversityandinclusion #stafftraining #workshops
