Superintendent Paul Simoes said advising instructors at Forest Charter, a K-12 personalized learning program, offered a brief speech about their graduates as they received their diplomas. Simoes said graduates normally hug their California-credentialed supervising teachers (ST) when they receive their certificate, but this year they exchanged “warm waves.”
