Nominate a Program!
Many of you out there have gone above and beyond to create some outstanding programs and projects. Every year, CCEA Plus selects the very best to be awarded and celebrated at the State Conference.
About the “Exemplary Program” Award
The CCEA+ team oversees a prestigious annual award to elevate innovative programs across the Alt Ed community, to be recognized and shared with other educators. Under the advisement of Bob Ehlers in the late 1990’s, a committee was formed to develop the guidelines for the “Exemplary Program” award. Following several meetings to refine the process, the program was first announced for the 1997 – 1998 school year. We now celebrate over 24 years of these noteworthy programs.
The goal is to provide an opportunity for all continuation, community day and alternative schools to reap the benefit of the numerous special programs that have been developed by our members. It is intended that through this process every alternative school in California can replicate the selected programs/projects.
In addition, the designation of an Exemplary Program provides recognition for individuals, schools and districts; provides outstanding ideas that benefit the needs of at-risk students; and, provides continuity of delivery of services statewide.
