The Inspire Program has been chosen as one of 51 recipients of the state’s leading educational honor, the Golden Bell Award. The Golden Bell Awards, now in their 39th year, are sponsored by the California School Boards Association to recognize outstanding public school programs for innovation, sustainability and best practices that facilitate positive student outcomes. Inspire will receive its award at a recognition reception and ceremony on Thursday, November 29, from 5 to 7 p.m. at CSBA’s Annual Education Conference and Trade Show in San Francisco at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis located at 780 Mission Street.
Inspire is a collaborative network that includes local cities, chambers of commerce, businesses, government entities, public school districts, county offices of education, and workforce development agencies. Its mission is to motivate students to find their passion and pursue their occupational dreams within their own community by building and leveraging strong community partnerships.
