Central Valley is awarded Model Continuation School status by the State Superintendent of Public Instruction

SACRAMENTO — State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond announced today that 43 schools throughout the state were recognized as Model Continuation High Schools (MCHS) for 2020.

“This recognition is a testament to the hard work, dedication, and determination of the teachers, school staff, and administrators who are helping these students to thrive personally and academically,” said Thurmond. “With the right guidance, encouragement, and support, students in continuation high schools can access the same career and college opportunities after graduation as their peers in traditional school settings. These model schools give students a chance to not only succeed in high school but in life.”
