For the third year in a row, Kairos Public School Vacaville Academy has been honored by the state for its civic engagement lessons.
It is one of 92 schools to receive a Civic Learning Award and the only one in Solano County to do so.
“It feels great,” Jared Austin, the executive director and co-founder of Kairos, said. “We have grown each year in our ability to offer students civic engagement and community service opportunities, and to have CDE and the California District Council acknowledge our efforts is great, and I think it also validates all the hard work our students are doing with community service and our teachers with the civic engagement lessons.”
