Through a series of interviews and job shadowing, California State University, Stanislaus Professor Noelle Won found that teachers who shine at otherwise low-performing schools are tied together by a consistent thread of resiliency.
When the University of California, Merced campus opened in 2005 it was supposed to be the beginning of a new era of access to higher educational opportunities for San Joaquin Valley students. In 1995, the University of California Board of Regents specifically selected Merced because it was in the heart of the state's largest and most populous region without its own UC campus - which hindered opportunities for residents and left a need for an educated workforce in the region.
Stanislaus County Superintendent of Schools Tom Changnon and five elected board members – Merle Kronberg, Luis Molina, Kim Rose, Mary Ann Sanders and Kim Spina – will make themselves available to the public at the Stanislaus County Fair.
California State University, Stanislaus students put the fun in chemistry on Tuesday when they assisted dozens of children in performing science experiments at the Turlock Salvation Army summer program. The college students and younger children used ordinary household ingredients to demonstrate the use of science in real life.
While students are enjoying the summer away from teachers, homework, and the pressure of high school life, Turlock High School is undergoing a massive renovation throughout its entire campus to prepare for the upcoming school year.
Turlock High School is continuing its quest to raise the bar on academic excellence by expanding its Advanced Placement program. THS currently offers 15 AP courses and is adding four new ones in the 2012-2013 school year: AP Psychology, AP Macroeconomics, AP Human Geography, and AP Environmental Science.
