Each person who works in public education contributes to the improvement of a student’s life. Those who work in continuation schools often see those improvements on a much greater scale.
For Dan Gribbon, continuation school principal at Fairvalley High in the Covina-Valley Unified School District, watching students’ lives change is a distinctive opportunity his work affords, and the priceless moments are many.
California educators are dedicated to education all students. Because not all students are the same, learning is not one-size-fits-all. Educational options administrators provide alternatives to traditional educational settings. These options, which include continuation schools, community day schools, juvenile court schools and independent study, provide at-risk students the choices they need to achieve academic success, and the leaders to guide them there.
