Award of Excellence 2023
Maple Creek Elementary School, Fresno County
Clovis Unified School District

The Chief Justice of California and State Superintendent of Public Instruction co-sponsor the Civic Learning Awards for California public schools. The award recognizes school-driven civic learning efforts to engage students in civic learning. To apply, schools describe how they faced and overcame challenges, engaged students to identify issues in their community (and think critically about solutions), and methods to incorporate the six research-based proven practices in civic learning, as outlined in the Guardians of Democracy Report.

 

Emphasis is placed on the depth and breadth of their efforts, and most award-winning schools require their entire student body to receive at least one high-quality civic education experience during the school year.
