Hard work pays off

Graduation is an exciting event. A lot of hard work is put into the organization of the event. A lot of hard work for our students to reach the end of this journey, but the best part is the smile on the students who at one time or another didn't think they could reach this goal of obtaining a high school diploma. This is the Palmdale Ca. graduation in July 2021.  If you are ready to start your journey for a better future visit our page to enroll at Classes start soon. 

Community clean up.

A big thank you to our Natural Resource team, they have been out in the Tehachapi community cleaning up the dry bush that is surrounding residential homes. There was a small brush fire off Highland at the bottom of Watercanyon and this clean-up helped with putting the local residents at ease. Thank you Cesar Chavez Environmental Corps and the Natural Resource team for keeping our communities safe and clean.  

Professional Development

 With school starting on August 30, 2021, for our EPIC de Cesar Chavez High School students, it is important for our teachers to participate in professional development. It is important for both new and veteran teachers. Professional development can be defined as a career-long process in which educators fine-tune their teaching to meet student needs. Life-long learning will keep them motivated and thinking positively and will help them gain the confidence to overcome any obstacles they face in the classroom. FIELD cares about its teachers and knows the importance of continued training and support. This is the FIELD staff in Indio California during professional development. This is #teamwork.
