    The Los Angeles School of Creativity and Technology (C-Tech) was designed in response to community concerns about the outdated school system and the overwhelming presence of chronically underperforming schools serving Black and Latino students in South Los Angeles. C-Tech will launch its first school in 2020 and will become a family of innovative public charter schools offering the first comprehensive required computer science and entrepreneurship core curriculum in California to Black and Latino students in South LA. Serving grades TK-16, all C-Tech students will engage in an engineering, product-based curriculum concentrating in robotics, virtual reality, game design, and music engineering; start a company or nonprofit, and apprentice at a Silicon Beach technology company. By 2040, C-Tech will graduate more than 2,000 work-force ready computer scientists of color in South Los Angeles.
