The Invisible California is a new series from Pivot and PACE that highlights the educational needs of some of the most underserved parts of California.

Join us in LA and Sacramento as we discuss the results of our research study on the educational and community landscape of the Antelope Valley, an area of Northern Los Angeles County the size of Rhode Island. The paper focuses on the rapid growth and stunning demographic changes of the school districts and communities of the region.

A panel of experts, including school district officials, community leaders, and researchers, will discuss the needs of the Antelope Valley and recommendations to expand and improve educational opportunities for the large numbers of low-income, homeless, and foster youth. They will also discuss how the growth of the Valley's population has been driven by increasing cost of living in Southern LA County and the resulting need of service providers, foundations, and government to shift their attention northward. Please join us!

Pivot Learning and Policy Analysis for California Education (PACE) are hosting a panel and discussion about supporting rural communities in California’s Antelope Valley to improve outcomes for children.

Laura Mulfinger, K12 Education Researcher at the University of Southern California, will speak with a panel of Antelope Valley School District leaders about the strengths, resources, needs, and opportunities of Antelope Valley. 

This presentation is designed for funders, policymakers, school and community leaders, and the public.
