ABC Unified School District officials celebrate at Tetzlaff Accelerated Learning Academy this past week for being named one of California’s “Schools to Watch” for 2014.

On February 5th, students, staff, parents, district leaders, board members and community members celebrated the selection of Carmenita Middle School and Tetzlaff Middle School as two of California’s 2014 Schools to Watch–Taking Center Stage model middle schools.
The celebration at both schools on Feb. 5th featured an address to the student body on their school’s selection as a model and the presentation of a banner. Dr. Irvin Howard, President of the National Forum to Accelerate Middle Grades Reform, noted, “Both Carmenita MS and Tetzlaff MS are models of what an outstanding middle school can be. School leaders from across the state and country will not turn to both of these schools for guidance on improving their programs to better serve their students.”
According to Superintendent, Dr. Mary Sieu, “California’s Schools to Watch—Taking Center Stage Program uses a competitive, rigorous review process to identify high performing, high impact middle schools so that all middle schools may have models of real world success. Carmenita MS and Tetzlaff MS are two of just 11 new model middle schools that have been identified statewide. This is the first time ABC schools have been selected for this recognition”.
The program is provided by the California Middle Grades Alliance, which includes the California League of Middle Schools, California Department of Education and other statewide educational organizations who are partners in the California Middle Grades Alliance.
ABCUSD Board Members along with ABC Superintendent Dr. Mary Sieu stand with Tetzlaff and Carmenita staff celebrating their selection as “Schools to Watch.”
