Maple High: Maple Makers Student-Run Business - 2019 Exemplary Program

Many of you out there have stepped outside of the box and developed some outstanding programs and projects. The CCEA+ team has developed a special means of recognizing your work. Under the advisement of Bob Ehlers, 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.

The goal is to provide an opportunity for all continuation or 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 continuation or alternative school in the 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.
