Chicas Latinas de Sacramento, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is striving to reduce the digital divide and provide equal opportunities by giving students the tools they need to succeed. In this digital age, lacking an at-home computer makes it difficult to complete homework and further learning. As a result, we are collecting gently used laptops, refurbishing them, and supplying them to students in need of an at-home computer.

 

This year we are donating the laptops to middle school students. Applications are due June 16, 2017 and students may apply by completing the attached application (provided in English and Spanish).  

 

See attached applications.

History-Social Science

Department Information

The History-Social Science Department offers courses in world history and United States history. Students learn about world societies from the Renaissance and medieval Japan, to African empires, and the earliest American civilizations, to mention only a few examples. Students of United States history learn to trace our county's origins from American Independence to the closing of the west, examining along the way how well our country has kept the promises made in the Declaration of Independence. Critical thinking, historical skills, and problem solving are emphasized.
