Since 2010, The Alliance for Language Learners Integration, Education and Success (ALLIES) has brought together adult schools and community colleges to meet the needs of adult English language learners in San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties.
ALLIES’ purpose is to accelerate student success though collaboration and alignment across the two systems. We also promote partnerships with community organizations, workforce development, public agencies and employers.
Our partners have tested a range of innovations: aligning curriculum, coordinating assessments, cross-referral, digital literacy and providing opportunities for teachers and other staff to work together.
