Jepson Middle School staff and teachers have been asked to travel to Washington, D.C., in June, when they will advise other middle school educators about effective strategies for teaching and student support, it has been announced.
The news comes as the Elder Street school was named one of only 56 U.S. middle schools to be added to the 2016 National Forum Schools To Watch list.
Schools to Watch, a registered trademark, is an initiative launched in 1999 by the National Forum to Accelerate Middle-Grades Reform. The forum identifies schools nationwide that meet three benchmarks of high-performing middle schools, Jennifer Leonard, the public information officer for Vacaville Unified, noted in a press release.
