SAN JOSE, CA – The California Department of Education (CDE) announced last week the schools and districts that have been named as winners of the 2022 California Pivotal Practice (CAPP) Award Program. This program from the CDE highlights school and district practices that supported students during the 2020-21 academic year when distance learning was in effect.
Of the 727 schools and 121 districts awarded, 12 schools and nine districts from Santa Clara County were among the CAPP winners announced by State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Tony Thurmond, on April 26. Those awarded demonstrated efforts to support students in four areas: student engagement, distribution of technology, nutrition services, and students' social-emotional well-being.
The 12 schools from Santa Clara County included Sherman Oaks Elementary, Evergreen Valley High, Union Middle, Dr. TJ Owens Gilroy Early College Academy, Sunrise Middle, Rocketship Academy Brilliant Minds, Rocketship Alma Academy, Rocketship Discovery Prep, Rocketship Los Suenos Academy, Rocketship Mateo Sheedy Elementary, Rocketship Rising Stars, and Rocketship Si Se Puede Academy.
The nine districts recognized were Berryessa Union School District, Campbell Union High School District, Campbell Union School District, Gilroy Unified School District, Los Altos School District, Luther Burbank School District, Milpitas Unified School District, Mountain View Whisman School District, and Saratoga Union School District.
"The district and school teams' creative thinking, design, and implementation are inspiring and a testament to their dedication to student success," said County Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Mary Ann Dewan. "Their actions, such as providing meals, distributing laptops and hotspots, and creating safe spaces to access mental health resources, supported students during a challenging time."
The CAPP Award Program takes the place of the California Distinguished Schools Program for 2022. In 2023 the California Distinguished Schools Program will resume. More details about the CAPP Program can be found at https://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/sr/pp/
