As an organization, we are in the middle of a three-year strategic plan to pursue a movement-building strategy that will bring people together to advance child-centered public policy, informed by racial equity and the lived experience of children and youth.
The Building Healthy Communities: Long Beach (BHCLB) Youth Committee and Parent Organizing Workgroup have collectively engaged thousands of students, parents, and community members since 2011. We support stakeholders' meaningful participation in the Long Beach Unified School District's (LBUSD) processes - especially Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) decisions - to ensure every student is healthy and thriving at school.This Equity Index of Supplemental and Concentration Funds Target Schools was created specifically for LBUSD by BHCLB with support from Advancement Project. The Equity Index builds upon LBUSD's current list of high need schools, based on the concentration of high need students per school site, by also including academic and neighborhood indicators that affect student learning and are of concern to constituents.
