The Golden Bell program promotes excellence in education by recognizing outstanding programs in school districts and county offices throughout
“This award represents a validation of the hard work by our teachers and staff, but more importantly, the adult students and their children that participate,” said Rocky Bettar, Director of Adult Education. “The CBET program, implemented 10 years ago, was a springboard for our other parenting programs in the District such as First 5 and Evenstart. I would like to recognize Mickie Miranda, who oversees the program. It was her vision and desire that has created a robust parent education program in this district that is the envy of many districts throughout the state.”
Through a partnership with Adult Education, CBET, Even Start and First 5, four elementary schools (Farjardo, Hurley, Northam and La Seda) have CBET/Family Literacy Programs, where skills for family success are offered. In addition to English language skills and tutoring, parents are offered classes in computers, parenting workshops, job development skills, High School Diploma/GED classes – all for free.
“In Rowland we recognize that education is not a K-12 obligation, but a Pre-K – Adult obligation,” said Bettar. “This bell will sit proudly among the 10 other Golden Bells that our District has received.”
