The California Dream Act of 2011 is the result of two bills, Assembly Bill 130 (AB 130) and Assembly Bill 131 (AB 131). Together, these bills allow undocumented and documented students who meet certain provisions of AB 540 law (see below) to apply for and receive private scholarships funneled through public universities (AB 130), state-administered financial aid, university grants, and community college fee waivers (AB 131).

Pathway to Purpose, by Lissa Watts and Unique Campa
At Redondo Shores High and Redondo Beach Learning Academy, we believe our students are on their own pathway to purpose and we want to support each of them to succeed. Some of the programs available that are directly impacting students in this endeavor are: PTSA; Associated Student Body; Service Learning; Work Experience; Wilderness Challenge; SCROC classes; El Camino Courses; Leadership Groups (provided through Beach Cities Health District and Clare Foundation) and Counseling Groups (school based counseling, Clare Foundation and Thelma McMillan). In addition, students are being challenged daily to find and work towards their purpose in the classroom. Journaling, art, photography, creative writing, senior portfolios, hands-on projects and directed instruction are instrumental in helping students find their way. We asked students at both Shores and RBLA, “What is your purpose?” Some of the answers to that question include: finding happiness; attending college; attaining a specific career; maintaining sobriety; raising a child; and joining the military. While the answer varies among students, we know that ultimately they are all on their own pathway to success! Many of our students are volunteering in the preschool and elementary schools, and helping younger children reach their potential too! They find their own strength and purpose by serving their community and making a difference in the lives of others. Others are working in Special Education classrooms and providing mentors for students with disabilities. We are also proud of our leadership students in ASB who are involved in several activities, ranging from Yearbook Committee and Event Photographers, to Tournament Directors and Spirit Week Committees. ASB, led by Unique Campa and Allison Parsons, serves as a community-building club within Shores by developing school spirit and providing students with the opportunity to take part in creating and administering school activities. The students enjoy working together and supporting each other to reach their goals.

We offer a personalized high school diploma program for students who desire an alternative to the comprehensive high school. RSHS is a credit recovery program whereby students can catch up on their credits and graduate early or on time by focusing on four classes at a time. Students enrolled at RSHS can complete 20-30 credits every four to nine weeks. Students taking concurrent classes through a local community college and So Cal Roc are eligible to earn more credits.
RSHS offers a blended educational model. Our students have the option of taking textbook based courses, on-line courses, or a combination of both textbook and online courses. Redondo Shores provides opportunities for ALL students to achieve their academic and career aspirations, and become successful and productive citizens. Our students are encouraged to tackle current and future challenges and to develop social and global awareness, civic responsibility, and personal growth so they will be active and informed members in the 21st century and beyond. Student programs are personalized and designed to meet the goals, interests and learning style of each individual student.
