Three graduate county community school

[slideshow_deploy id=’77702′]

Three the first to graduate from the newly dedicated, S. William Abel Community School, on Wednesday, June 8, 2016.

The S. William Abel Community School is under the direction of the Colusa County Office of Education for at-risk juveniles and was founded to provide expelled, and probationary placed students in a local education environment to assist them in their education.

“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 Colusa County Superintendent of Schools, Michael West.

Alfonso Fuentes, Lance Campbell, and Alejandro Becerra marked the first students to complete their education with praise. Alfonso Aguilera earned title of Valedictorian of his class, and he thanked the staff for their support.

“It was an interesting year, it was our first year back as a community school,” said CCOE Educatior, Russell Gardener, “When I took job as teacher, I didn’t know what kind of kids we would have, and although we had a number of kids come through the program, the three here today were rock solid of the program.”

Joined by CCOE Educator, Leigh Andreatta, she echoed Gardners comments, and together the teachers listed the best qualities of the students.

“The paths that brought these kids to the community school are different, but the goal was still the same – and that was to graduate and to get a diploma, and move ahead with their adult lives,” said Andreatta.

Editor’s Note: The last names of the students: Alfonso and Alejandro have been corrected from the print edition. The names were incorrectly provided to us, and notice of error was not provided until after publication.
