During this holiday season, we are taking a moment to reflect on the impact we have had at Pivot Learning, and to thank you for going on this journey with us.

This has been an eventful year at Pivot – we shortened our name, got a new logo and look, and partnered with 72 districts to improve outcomes for students! Our Center for Equitable Education Spending helped districts identify millions of dollars in their budget to reallocate to important priorities, and Beyond High School is transforming the student learning experience across California. We partnered with fifty leaders, from high school principals to school board members to think about how the LCAP could be better, and we continue with our commitment to supporting rural schools.

One thing is clear: we couldn’t have done any of this without your support. From all of us at Pivot to you and yours, we wish you peace and a prosperous 2017!
