    Golden Bell award winner

    I am immensely proud of Clair Burgener AARC  (CB  AARC) for being selected as winner of  The California School Boards Association (CSBA) Golden Bell Award. According to CSBA, this award - now in its 39th year - "promotes excellence in education and school board governance by recognizing outstanding programs..." and they got it right by recognizing CB AARC's Independent Study model. The selection criteria for this aware includes programs that are innovative, exemplary, and those that have made a difference in the lives of students, and it is evident that CB AARC meets and exceeds at least these three, and more. Students at CB AARC are welcomed, challenged, and supported by committed and responsive teachers and staff in a flexible and authentic learning space. The opportunities provided, the barriers removed, and the path forward created for students at CB AARC all make this model an excellent selection for the Golden Bell Award... Jordy Sparks, Ed.L.D., Director of Student Services...
