The Fairfield-Suisun Adult School for the second time in four years has received a Golden Bell award from the California School Boards Association.
The award “seeks to reward best practices in education by seeking out sustainable, innovative and exemplary programs that address the changing needs of students,” according to a press release issued by the Fairfield-Suisun School District.
It received the award specifically for its Kindergarten Readiness Roundup, which has taken place for the past two years. Pre-kindergarten children and parents take part in a round of activities that provide information to parents about the readiness of their children for kindergarten. The event also allows district staff to identify children who might need extra help when they begin school.
