McKinley has been awarded the California Department of Education 2022 CA Pivotal Practice Award!

Good afternoon, McKinley Lions,

I am thrilled to announce that McKinley has been awarded the California Department of Education 2022 CA Pivotal Practice Award!

The 2022 California Pivotal Practice (CAPP) Award is being utilized by California in 2022 in place of the California Distinguished Schools (DS) Program. It celebrates schools and districts that implemented an innovative practice during the 2020–21 school year, when California required schools to offer distance learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

McKinley is being recognized for the exemplary implementation of pivotal practices tied to family and student engagement and the social-emotional well-being of students during Distance Learning.  

This is an impressive honor, and soon we will be proudly displaying the CDE Pivotal Practice Award flag, seal, and award certificate on our campus.

Congratulations to the entire McKinley community for all the hard work and team effort during the pandemic.  Go Lions!

Dr. Benjamin
