Mission and Goal

SCHOOL MOTTO:

Achieving Academic Excellence

PURPOSE:

Motivate the individual student to become a life-long learner, as well as a productive and contributing citizen to his or her community.

MISSION:

The mission of Lifeline Education Charter School is to provide an academically challenging curriculum and to create a learning community of students, parents, teachers, staff, and committed adults from the community, which will provide the support necessary for each student to reach his/her highest individual potential – intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically.


VISION:

We envision Lifeline Education Charter School as a thriving learning community providing students with both educational and real world learning opportunities which will engage the whole child in the learning process. Together, this community will build a scholarly, creative, and exciting environment for all students including at-risk students, attracting the most highly skilled and committed educators and community members.

Lifeline Education Charter School will promote a learning environment that emphasizes academic progress as well as academic success. Our students will obtain a sense of purpose and responsibility for their academic careers, and the Charter School will provide an outlet for creative expression, and empower our students and their families to participate in the education process in a way that benefits the family and community. Accountability and personal responsibility will be embraced by all students, parents and teachers.


TARGETED POPULATION:

Lifeline Education Charter School is a 4th-12th grade charter school designed to provide an alternative choice to the traditional public school system and focuses on meeting the educational needs of students and families who live in and around Compton and surrounding areas. Although the majority of our pupils are from the community of Compton, Lifeline is open to all residents of California and typically admits students from various parts of Los Angeles County.

Lifeline will continue to focus its resources and efforts on the “at risk” student population and the inclusion of those students who have not been able to obtain an education that challenges their academic, social, and moral potential through traditional sources of public or private education. Lifeline Education Charter School will continue to be a place where the community is welcome and the students feel privileged.

Data on incoming, enrolled students is gathered by talking with students and parents, by looking at existing records and services provided by their previous schools, and when possible, by scheduling an entry conference between students’ and their Lifeline advisors. The staff uses the data from these meetings to ensure that Lifeline has the appropriate place for the student.

Lifeline Education Charter School seeks to recover students who have dropped out of school or are being  underserved by the current public school system by:

  • Pre-assessing (after enrollment but before placement in classes) students thoroughly in the areas of reading and math
  •  Discovering the individual student’s areas of high interest or talent
  • Developing Prescriptive Individual Learning Plans
  • Engaging students in their own learning aspirations
  • Promoting on-going rigorous professional development
  • Common Core aligned instruction
  • Continual monitoring and adjusting of PILP’s for every student
  • Open transparent communication with parents and stakeholders as to the increase in student achievement.
