The Napa County Office of Education has won three Golden Bell Awards for its school programs.
The office was honored on Saturday at the 33rd annual Golden Bell Awards presented by the California School Boards Association.
The awards presented were for the “Napa County Hablamos” program, the “On the Road to Excellence” program, and the “Sonoma/Napa Afterschool Partnership (SNAP)” program.
The “Napa County Hablamos” program allows school employees to learn Spanish free of charge through the online language learning program Rosetta Stone.
The “On the Road to Excellence” program, launched by the Napa Preschool Program, combines students with and without special education needs into the same classroom. Child Development and Special Education teachers are cross-trained to teach all students, and special education services and therapies are integrated into classroom routines.
The SNAP program helps provide academic tutors in after-school programs that target low-income and low-performing students.
