Trinity Elementary School in Los Angeles to Remain Open


In early June 2022, ACCE-Los Angeles Education Chapter, United Teachers of Los Angeles, Trinity Elementary School staff and students celebrated the news that the community's beloved Trinity will stay open and become a Community School. Trinity's second grade students will also be allowed to remain. The coalition successfully fought off L.A. Unified School District plans to permanently close the 118-year old Trinity and hand the building over to Gabriella Charter School. ACCE Education Chapter members, some of whom are parents of Trinity students, worked tirelessly organizing rallies at the school and creating video testimonials telling LAUSD and Gabriella Charter board members not to displace Trinity students and harm the community.
