Students view comments from other journalism schools during a gallery walk at one of the first LAUSD journalism collaborative meetings in the fall 2010 at Los Angeles City College.

Since 2010, a group of LAUSD journalism advisers and students have met on a monthly (or every other month) basis to discuss journalism-related matters on our campuses and offer each other support. For the first three years, a grant from the McCormick Foundation funded our journalism collaborative meetings (paying for mentors and pizza) and our mentors organized the two-hour meetings held after school usually on a Thursday.

The funding ran out last year but we continued meeting with Lydia Ramos, from the LAUSD Superintendent’s Office, who organized our meetings. Lydia is a former journalist and former journalism teacher, too, so she is very committed to the journalism programs and supporting the teachers.

Plans are to continue meeting again this year and Lydia is currently working on a great opportunity for journalism students. In order to organize for the monthly meetings and see what needs journalism teachers have, please fill out this short survey so that the meetings can be of help to you and serve a purpose.

Thanks!
