State superintendent visits Corona-Norco schools – Press Enterprise – Press-Enterprise

State Superintendent Tony Thurmond met Monday, April 11, with educators and students in the Corona-Norco Unified School District.

Thurmond, the California State Superintendent of Public Instruction, first toured the district’s Parent Center before heading to Raney Intermediate School, which has an award-winning mentorship program. The Corona school was recognized in October with a Golden Bell Award from the California School Boards Association.

Raney ROCKs was developed to address the behavioral needs and to decrease a high suspension rate,” a district news release states.

The intermediate school collaborated with the San Bernardino-based non-profit group Rescue a Generation over the past two years “to help students escape the traps of their own mindsets, circumstances, and environments.”

Since the student mentorship began in the 2017-18 school year, Raney reported a decrease in suspensions and chronic absences.

“The district is so proud of the comprehensive work Raney administration, educators and community partners have done in order to see a vital shift in the culture of this school,” Corona-Norco Superintendent Sam Buenrostro said in the release.
