San Diego Unified School District
San Diego, CA
“The League is a space for kids, staff and parents to meet, centered around a particular topic that they create each month. Community members are invited to come and speak to the students around the topic. Then students and staff work together on ideas in order to both present and create projects that can add value to our school community. It's the creation of a grassroots "cogen" involving staff, parents, and students. ”
