MIT Strikes Gold!

The California State Department of Education (CDE) has made its decision, and Mare Island Technology Academy, along with its sister school, MIT Academy high school, have been awarded a total of five state-wide awards in three separate categories!

MIT Academy High School: 

  • California Gold Ribbon Award
  • Exemplary Career Technical Education Program
  • Title I Academic Achieving School

Mare Island Technology Academy Middle School: 

  • California Gold Ribbon Award
  • Title I Academic Achieving School

LCAP Available for Public Review

The magazine The Week has a column called “Boring but Important.” The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) might fit into this category. But the important really outweighs the boring…and some parts are really interesting.
There’s an LCAP for each school because Mare Island Technology Academy Middle School is a separate charter from MIT Academy High School. The LCAPs have similar sections about the strategic planning process, and most of the goals and measures of progress are similar, for example:

Mare Island Technology Academy to Receive Multiple Gold Ribbon Visits

Mare Island Technology Academy, along with its sister school MIT Academy High School, have been notified by the California State Department of Education that they will be receiving multiple school walk-throughs after qualifying for the new Gold Ribbon / California Distinguished Schools program. Only three Solano County schools were selected for walk-throughs, and MIT Academy, with both its middle and high schools under consideration, comprised two of them (the other being C.A. Jacobs Middle School in Dixon).

The new California Gold Ribbon Award, implemented this year under the direction of State Superintendent Tom Torlakson, was inaugurated this year to succeed the previous California Distinguished School program. As part of the Gold Ribbon selection process, a new category has been added, the California Career Technical Education Exemplary School award. As technology-based schools, both MIT middle and high schools are also candidates for the CTE awards, which means the combined schools are in the running for a total of four distinguished school awards – two each for the Gold Ribbon and CTE awards.
