[slideshow_deploy id=’72813′]

On Tuesday, September 8, 2015, the Colusa County Office of Education hosted a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony dedicating a portion of the CCOE Education Village as the Court & Community School in honor of Judge S. William Abel.

“We have revived our program to provide our expelled and probationary placed students to continue their education and remain focused on their education goals,” said Colusa County Superintendent of Schools, Mike West.

The CCOE Court and Community School will provide counseling for students to help them understand why they are there, and offering behavioral help while providing a one-on-one classroom atmosphere with certificated curriculum in sync with their individual schools.

“We want the students to remain on track with their education goals so we communicate with their schools to provide the same level of curriculum so that they will easily transition back into their school after placement,” said West.

West added that the district hopes to offer soon vocational and life skills to provide the students with valuable and employable skills once they have completed their GED.

In addition to academics, the program officers behavioral education with the help of Friday Night Live and the Colusa County Department of Behavioral Health. Each discussing critical topics to help students make the right decision.

“We meet bi-weekly with the students to discuss their academic performance and behavior,” said Maria Espinoza, Assistant Superintendent of Student Support Services, “we set two week goals and whenever we see an issue we dress it right away.”

While focusing on the success of its students,  the CCOE Court, and Community School values its students opinion and seeks a way to make their learning experience better.

“Our students voices are important, and we want them to be involved in their education and most are surprised that we want to hear their opinion,” said Espinoza, “I like to say that we talk with our students and not to them.”
