Special to the Tribune
Administrators from the Martinez Unified School District attended a recent meeting of the Martinez Rotary Club. Their presentation was “Alhambra High School of Today and the Future.”
Superintendent Rami Muth made several introductory comments and then turned the meeting over to Audrey Lee, Director of Curriculum and Educational Technology. She discussed Career and Technology Education (CTE) and its importance to students. It prepares students to be college and career ready by the end of their four years.
Alhambra High School Principal Tom Doppe continued with specifics relating to Alhambra. He said one of the most energizing programs began in the athletic departments. It has four specific goals for athletes – education, accountability, integrity and resilience. It is so successful it has become part of the culture across school lines, involving other students and staff members.
Doppe also discussed the three new pathways for students at Alhambra to take. They are medical, engineering, and ICT (information and computer technology). Each involves new classes and there will be more opportunities in these areas in the future. Construction of new classrooms and renovation of the shop areas are planned for the near future.
CJ Cammack, Assistant Superintendent, discussed the future of Martinez education. He will become Superintendent this spring when Muth retires. He will not make any drastic changes, but will build on the direction the school district is now going in. He feels we have an outstanding district, and it will only continue to get better.
Martinez Rotary meets Wednesday morning at 7:30 a.m. at Grace Episcopal Church on Muir Station Road, Martinez. Visitors are welcome. For further information call (925) 372-0775.
