President’s Letter 2018

CCEA Graduation 2018

A Message from the 2018-2019 CCEA President, Scott Braden:

CCEA Scott Braden

Welcome to the California Continuation Education Association — the voice for all things continuation education. Historically, CCEA has been instrumental in structuring success for schools and students up and down the State. Today, CCEA is growing and expanding as an organization. It’s mission and vision is committed to honoring, advocating, resourcing, empowering, connecting and inspiring continuation education students, schools, certificated staff, classified staff and stakeholders.

Our Community

Our statewide community connects to well over four hundred high schools in four major regions, from the south to the north. CCEA’s partnerships continue to expand, but its most strategic partnership is with the California Department of Education involving the Model Continuation High School program.

Santa Clara, California

CCEA is well known for its annual, three day conference. Last year’s conference took place in San Diego, California and this year’s conference will take place in Santa Clara, California. As always, the current years’ Model Schools receive recognition and are honored in episodic fashion. Empowering workshops and networking opportunities are all facilitated wherein new friendships/partnerships are formed and old friendships are nurtured. I encourage you all to register early for the annual CCEA conference, and to do so is a very easy process due CCEA’s user friendly website.

Your Support

If you are new to the continuation education community, then you’ve found the right organization to join, and, if you’re a veteran we thank you for your continued support — year in and year out.

Best regards,
Scott Braden
President, CCEA
