Since 1951, California Teachers Association and California Casualty have supported and protected educators in the Golden State in partnership. That’s why it is no surprise that both organizations are proud sponsors of the 2017 California School Recognition Program, acknowledging those who are making strides to educate our children, create great learning centers, and adapt to new challenges and standards.
We join the California Department of Education in recognizing the five extraordinary California Teachers of the Year (celebrated in February) and the 275 middle and high schools named 2017 Gold Ribbon Schools.
California Casualty CEO Beau Brown added how impressed he was by the educators who help students reach their full potential. “We are all inspired by the extraordinary commitment it takes to be a Gold Ribbon School,” he said. “Just as you commit so much to make a difference for future generations, we are proud to support you with the highest level of care, service, compassion and understanding.”
Superintendent Tom Torlakson said, “These awards highlight excellence across the state, provide a forum for sharing best practices and recognize educators who contribute to the highest quality of education for California’s students.”
The alliance of the California Department of Education, CTA and California Casualty is a testament to how education advocates, businesses and organizations can come together to promote the remarkable successes of our schools and educators.
