Robertson High School Named ‘Model Continuation High School’
Posted 2/25/20

State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond announced Fremont Unified School District’s Robertson High School is among the 43 schools throughout the state 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.”

 

“We are proud to have Robertson recognized once again by the state for its dedicated efforts to meet the educational needs of our students,” added FUSD Superintendent, Dr. Kim Wallace. “Congratulations to Principal, Sal Herrera, to all Robertson staff, and its students for serving as a fine example of a school community coming together to succeed no matter the circumstances.”

Continuation schools provide a high school diploma program for students ages sixteen through eighteen who have not graduated from high school, are required to attend school, and are at risk of not completing their education. The MCHS were selected based on a comprehensive and competitive application process that involved assessments and data. The process included a peer review panel and on-site visit.

The MCHS Recognition Program is a collaborative partnership between the California Department of Education (CDE) and the California Continuation Education Association (CCEA). The program honors continuation high schools for the comprehensive services they provide at-risk youth through instructional strategies, flexible scheduling, guidance, and counseling.

Robertson and other schools selected as MCHS retain their designation for three years and will be recognized at the 2020 CCEA State Conference in San Diego on May 1–3, 2020. For more information, please visit the CDE Continuation Education web page or the CCEA website
