“These model schools provide invaluable resources and academic opportunities to our high-needs students, who often are dealing with difficult life events,” said State Superintendent of Public Instruction Thurmond. “The efforts of teachers and administrators at our Model Continuation High Schools provide students with the social support, goal-setting, and coping skills that they need to succeed in the academic setting and in their lives after high school.”
Selection was based on a comprehensive application process including academic data and an on-site visit. There are more than 430 continuation high schools in California.
Family Resource Centers to be launched
Garden Grove Unified School District is opening four new Family Resource Centers to serve as hubs for families and students across the district to access critical services in areas like food, health care, housing, mental health counseling, immigration counseling, victim assistance, and more.
In August of 2017, GGUSD opened its first Family Resource Center, named the Lloyd M. Stone Family Resource Center, located on the Clinton Mendenhall Campus, 13611 Clinton Street in Garden Grove. The expansion of four new Family Resource Centers, will allow the district to significantly increase the level of assistance and care available to GGUSD families.
In February and March, GGUSD Board of Education members will cut a ceremonial ribbon at each of the four new FRCs which will be located at Brookhurst Elementary School, Bryant Arts Academy, Fitz Intermediate Computer Science Academy and Irvine Intermediate School.
