LAUSD program helping Black students achieve personal, academic goals

Wednesday, December 29, 2021

The Black Student Achievement Plan provides for educators like Gregory Sims at Dana Middle School. Sims is a School Climate Advocate who creates a rapport with students, helping inspire them to reach academic and personal goals. The Climate Advocate provides social-emotional support for students, and the advocate's training in conflict resolution helps stop disagreements early, thus reducing the frequency of traditional forms of discipline.
