Alumnae ANGELA BASS, Superintendent of Instruction: A 29-year veteran of urban education has been appointed superintendent of instruction for the Partnership for L.A. Schools, and will officially bring her team to take over six Los Angeles Unified School District campuses including Gompers and Markham middle schools beginning July 1.
Angela Bass, who was formerly executive director of the Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence in the San Diego Unified School District is credited with helping the state’s second largest district improve math scores and with increasing the number of students at proficient and advanced levels by about eight percent each year since 2003.
The Partnership for L.A. Schools is Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s program to help turn around “failing” LAUSD schools. In exchange for control of the six campuses, the Partnership must demonstrate measurable improvements and increased accountability.
