Faylane has received it's second award this year, the first was announced in fall 2021 that we were a Us News "Best School" among schools rated across California and the U.S.
Yesterday, we received word that we were a Pivotal Practice Award School, based on the unique manner our staff served students' intervention needs in the 2020-21 school year (to present day).
Twelve schools in GGUSD earned the 2022 California Pivotal Practice (CAPP) Award for innovative practices implemented during the 2020-2021 school year when California required schools to offer distance learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic. GGUSD schools that received the award include Alamitos Intermediate, Bryant Arts Academy, Faylane Elementary, Garden Grove High School, Heritage Elementary, Irvine Intermediate, Marshall Elementary, Riverdale Tech Academy, Stanford Elementary, Stanley Elementary, Warren Elementary, and Violette Elementary. Among GGUSD’s numerous pivotal practices were successful initiatives to deliver sensory learning toolkits to families of students with special needs, build school spirit and classroom engagement with fun virtual events, deliver devices to all students, address social-emotional needs with a variety of virtual counseling groups, and more.
It is with honor and pride in our staff that I'm sure you will join me in congratulating our teachers and support personnel for continuing to serve students with diligence, expertise, and care.
Good on Faylane!
