Congratulations to the 43 outstanding classified, certificated and administrative Fresno Unified School District personnel, who were honored at the Excellence in Education awards dinner Feb. 12. These individuals were nominated for their exemplary dedication and service to K-12 and adult school students.
We at Fresno Adult School are especially proud that six members of our staff received this recognition. Our mission statement is to prepare students to achieve their educational and career goals. This is being successfully implemented by offering Adult Basic Education classes designed to help improve basic reading, writing and math skills. These classes prepare students for their General Education Development or high school diplomas.
Our Career Technical Education programs offer full certification or individual classes for vocational possibilities or a career change. Health care training (certified/licensed nursing, emergency medial technicians), informational technology (computers/office assisting) and various service fields (food, custodial) provide pathways to obtain productive jobs.
The citizenship and English as a second language programs are a huge success in helping our diversified ethnic students transition to American society and achieve their future dreams.
Our motto at Fresno Adult is “City Changers.” Our students’ success stories verify what excellence in education is all about.
