By Shane Newell
Ten Inland education programs took home Golden Bell awards from the California School Boards Association.
For the past 38 years, the Golden Bell awards have recognized successful programs at individual schools, school boards, districts and county offices. More than 50 awards were handed out this year.
Four Riverside County programs received the honor.
Recipients included the Medical Assisting Program at Perris High School, Project Moving Forward at Moreno Valley Unified School District, Valley View Elementary School’s Solid Gold STEM and Riverside County Office of Education’s Crime Prevention: Collaboration between Riverside County and Riverside County District Attorney’s Office.
Six San Bernardino County programs also took home a prize.
Recipients included Don Antonio Lugo High School’s Lugo Engineering and Design Program, Yucaipa High School’s A Night in the Trenches and Montclair High School’s Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) Program.
Other winners include San Bernardino City Unified School District’s Operation Recovery and “Grow Your Own” Teacher Recruitment and Retention Program and the Countywide Student Advisory Panel at San Bernardino County Office of Education.
“We are proud of the impact that the program has made in giving our high school students a voice for identifying issues that are important to them that are taking place on their school campuses and in their communities,” San Bernardino County Superintendent Ted Alejandre said of the student panel in a news release.
