GOLDEN Opportunities for Students in AVUHSD

Congratulations to two educational pathways in the Antelope Valley Union High School District for achieving Linked Learning Gold certification. The pathways – Biomedical Science Academy at Eastside High School and Multimedia and Engineering Academy at Lancaster High School – are among the first in the nation to achieve this distinction.

 Linked Learning pathways integrate rigorous academics with technical coursework that is relevant to the needs of local employers, offer students work-based learning experiences aligned with their classes, and provide support services to help students graduate ready for entry into college and career. Gold certification is based on evidence that a pathway successfully integrates these core components of the Linked Learning approach. It is the Linked Learning field’s highest standard for college and career preparation.
