Sierra High School Named a Model Continuation High School for 2017

Sierra High School was one of 35 schools that State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced today with the designation as Model Continuation High Schools for 2017.

Each of these schools is recognized for operating innovative academic programs that help prepare at-risk students for 21st-century careers and college. The schools were selected based on a comprehensive and competitive application process that involved effectiveness, assessments, and use of data. The process included a peer review panel and on-site visit. 

The Model Continuation High Schools Recognition Program is a joint project of 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.
