CVUSD Schools Recognized as 2022 CA Pivotal Practices Recipients

On Thursday, April 26, 2022, State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Tony Thurmond, announced the winners of the state's newly created 2022 California Pivotal Practice (CAPP) Award. This prestigious award is in lieu of the traditional California Distinguished Schools Program Award. 

Although state law has suspended the reporting of state and local indicators on the 2020 and 2021 CA School Dashboard amid the COVID-19 Pandemic, the California Department of Education wished to recognize sites that continued to demonstrate exemplary efforts to students in four target areas:

  • Student Engagement
  • Distribution of Technology
  • Nutrition Services
  • Social Emotional Well-Being of Students

CAPP Award winners completed an extensive online application highlighting an innovative practice in one of the four target areas that was implemented during the 2020–21 school year.

Thank you to everyone at each site who continued to support CVUSD students during these exceptionally challenging times, and taking the time to share how your staff implemented pivotal practices.
