Congratulations La Vina Middle School on Achieving I²S Recognition

Dear Superintendent Rivera and Principal Townson:


On behalf of the Kern County Superintendent of Schools (KCSOS), we are delighted to inform you La Vina Middle School has been officially recognized for implementing innovative and impactful practices to improve student outcomes. The use of Writing Across the Curriculum is a testament to your commitment to excellence in education and dedication to fostering sustainability within your school community.


The I2S recognition is a prestigious acknowledgement of schools through a rigorous identification process including data analysis, submitted application, and site interviews. La Vina Middle School was selected as one of the top five Kern County schools to have successfully implemented, provided evidence for, and was able to articulate promising practices having shown effectiveness and sustainability. KCSOS is excited to highlight your use of Writing Across the Curriculum at the September 6th Instructional Leadership Network (ILN) meeting. 


The committee would like to share this special recognition with your board, community members and staff at your district's August board meeting. After your consideration, please provide us with the date and time of your August board meeting.


We look forward to celebrating La Vina Middle School.
