School Specialty® and the College Football Playoff Foundation® (CFPF) share a common goal to improve educator resources and provide children with better learning opportunities. This mission is supported by both organizations through CFPF’s Extra Yard for Teachers® program. This time, we headed to Los Angeles with a design in mind for a new media center at YES Academy!
The Young Empowered Scholars Academy, or YES Academy, is an elementary school in the Los Angeles Unified School District. Their mission is to “educate, inspire, and enrich their diverse students through a challenging and culturally relevant curriculum.” School Specialty and CFPF proudly support their vision to “educate enthusiastic, self-motivated, respectful learners who are technologically proficient and capable of succeeding in a global and diverse society.”
This new media center is just one of over 50 collaborations between School Specialty and CFPF. Since 2015, our partnership has completed learning environment upgrades in 33 school districts across 13 states, with more on the way!
School Specialty and our Projects by Design® experts worked with the school to design a space that best supports their needs. Our goal is to complement the school’s style of teaching and learning with a contemporary, welcoming space that drives outcomes. This new learning space, featuring flexible seating options from our Classroom Select® proprietary furniture line, is just one more step in School Specialty’s mission of Transforming More Than Classrooms.
Congratulations to YES Academy on your new media center!
