Model School Readings and Site-Visits

Model Continuation School 2018It’s a very exciting time for continuation schools up and down the state of California. With the Model Continuation High School Southern and Northern Readings complete, many schools are expecting site validation teams to descend on their campuses in expeditious fashion these next couple of months so as to recommend model school status to the California Department of Education.

CCEA is so very proud of all the continuation high schools that applied, and like these schools, we are all eagerly awaiting their model school recognition at the 2019 CCEA Annual Conference in Santa Clara, California. It will be a night of celebration for schools, students, staff members, stakeholders and superintendents.

CCEA Model Continuation Dinner 2018

Please plan now to come out to the Awards Dinner and Conference in April.


Over 70 CCEA members and volunteers participated in the Model School field training and model school application readings in September. A huge shout-out to all of you for volunteering your time and professionally developing so as to be a stronger educator and advocate for continuation high school students and schools.

Jacie Ragland (Educational Options Consultant for the CDE) is a dynamic leader, organizer and ambassador for the California Department of Education, as well as CCEA. Jacie led both trainings for the model school readings for the North and for the South. Her genuine care, structuring of success and expertise is unprecedented and CCEA is proud to be aligned with such an exemplary professional. Thank you, Jacie!
