Linked Learning Pathway
We are proud to be one of the newest State Bar recognized high school programs that feeds into a local Community College, East Los Angeles College, and its Pathway to Law School Program. A truly unique partnership that will provide Roosevelt Law & Public Service students a head start to the State Bar of California's plan to increase diversity in California's Law Schools.
Together with Professor Christine Rodriguez, J.D. of East Los Angeles College's Law School Pathway Program we have designed a unique opportunity to allow a cohort of Roosevelt Law & Public Service Pathway students to enroll and take community college courses at Roosevelt High School. As a "feeder high school" we are proud to be able to give our students the unique opportunity to take CSU & UC transferable ELAC courses while still enrolled as high school students. Additionally, several of the courses students take will also satisfy ELAC's Pathway to Law Schools' required courses.
Our program is officially listed as a participating High School Law Pathway/Academy by California Law, Inc. the non-profit organization seeking to help diversify the Law profession in California and beyond.

Linked Learning is an approach to education that transforms the traditional high school experience by bringing together strong academics, a demanding technical education and real-world experience to help students gain an advantage in high school, post-secondary education, and careers.
The four core components of Linked Learning are:
Rigorous Academics. The academic component of Linked Learning includes college preparatory English language arts, mathematics, science, history, and foreign language courses.
Real-World Technical Skills. A challenging technical component of three or more courses that help students gain the knowledge and skills that can give them a head start on a successful career.
Work-Based Learning. A series of work-based learning opportunities that begin with mentoring and job shadowing and evolve into on site internships, school-based enterprises, and/or virtual apprenticeships.
Personalized Supports. Support services including counseling and supplemental instruction in reading, writing, and mathematics that help students master the academic and technical learning.
