San Joaquin USA's New High-Tech School!

River Islands Academy dedicated

Banta Elementary School District’s new River Islands Technology Academy in Lathrop was dedicated Wednesday evening.

Built as part of the Banta school district, the charter will serve 350 to 400 students in grades K-6 when it opens its doors on for the first day of classes on August 14 according to Banta Superintendent Albert Garibaldi.

This is a momentous milestone,” Garibaldi said at the dedication. “It marks the culmination of many years of planning and pre-planning.”

In addition to an administration building and multipurpose room with gymnasium, the school also has classrooms with wireless internet hubs, a fully equipped kitchen, science labs, library and a computer lab.

Students in kindergarten through second grade will receive mini iPads and the students in the higher grades will get laptops.

New programs aim to increase graduation rates

While high school graduation rates appear to be up in the Central Valley, Stanislaus and San Joaquin schools are determined to increase them further by implementing valuable programs to help keep kids in school.

Slated to roll out this month, Come Back Kids — a new charter school run by the Stanislaus County Office of Education — was specifically designed to address the academic needs of students 16 through 23 who are at risk of not completing high school or who have already dropped out.

Wells Fargo's commitment to the community is evident through its generous donation of nearly $100,000 to support University of the Pacific's community outreach programs. This is a great example of a business teaming up with an institution of higher education to benefit economically challenged students in the community.

Yesterday (pictured ) Alice C. Juarez, District Manager at Wells Fargo hands over a check for $45,000, to support University of the Pacific's Tomorrow Project outreach programs. Burnie Atterbury, University of the Pacific Vice President for University Development and Alumni Relations, and 134 students in the Prep-USA Reach for the Stars Academy (a Tomorrow Project academy) accepted the donation.
