State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond announced on Monday, February 24, Boynton High School is among 43 schools throughout the state being 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 in a press release.
“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.”
Boynton High School has created a culture of opportunity and growth for students in a safe, supportive environment. Through innovative instructional strategies, flexible scheduling, guidance and counseling, Boynton continues to prove why it was selected to be a model continuation high school.
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 an on-site visit.
Boynton will be recognized at the 2020 California Continuation Education Association (CCEA) State Conference in San Diego on May 1–3, 2020.
