The Travis Education Center was among the 35 schools state Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson recognized Wednesday as Model Continuation Schools for 2017.
“I applaud the dedicated administration and staff on their work to assist and motivate at-risk students and help them reach their full potential,” Torlakson said in a statement released by his office. “The positive and nurturing climate these schools have created inspires students to do well in their academic work and also to contribute to their communities.”
Continuation schools provide high school diploma programs for students ages 16 to 18 who are often at risk of not completing their graduation requirements due to a variety of reasons.
