SAN JOSE, Calif. —California School Boards Association is proud to present their 2020 Winter magazine. Within the issue, CSBA has announced Metropolitan Education District’s Silicon Valley Career Technical Education Fire Science/First Responder program as "Not your everyday career tech program".
Fire Science/First Responder was selected, in 2019, as one of 57 recipients of California’s leading educational honor, the Golden Bell Award. The Golden Bell Awards are presented by the California School Boards Association to promote excellence in public education and school board governance by recognizing outstanding programs and governance practices. The awards reflect the depth and breadth of education programs and governance decisions supporting these programs that are necessary to address students’ changing needs.
With the support from our Fire Science/First Responder instructors, Phil Gonzales and Oscar Tovar, our Fire Science/First Responder students leave SVCTE with 18 industry certifications and hours of community service work.
