New IHADLA Class Announced
The students of Program 20, like all of our students, come from an under-resourced community:
- 21% of the population lives below the poverty level.
- 74% of Frank D. Parents’ students qualify for free or reduced meals.
- 68% of the school’s students did not meet state testing standards for English.
- 85% did not meet state standards for Math.
Program 20 will be led by Chaznae Walker, a dedicated IHADLA staff member who’s worked as a Program Coordinator in Inglewood since 2006, and our new Program Coordinator, Georgina Cortinas.
“We are so excited to work with these wonderful young people in the coming years in order to help them reach their full academic and professional potential,” said Pamela Miller, IHADLA’s CEO. “We believe that our programming model, combined with our fruitful partnership with IUSD, provides an effective method for breaking the cycle of generational poverty. Most importantly, we are dedicated to helping our newest students achieve their dreams,” said Miller.
Each P20 student will be given a backpack full of donated school supplies thanks to the following donors: Skanska, Crystal McKiver, Giant Spoon, ShipBob, UBS, InMotion Hosting, Inc. and RSM US LLP
