During a recent educational conference in Sacramento, Dr. Jacki Sprague, from Mission Valley Regional Occupational Program (MVROP) in Fremont, was honored as the Administrator of the Year by the California Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE).

As MVROP Program Coordinator, Sprague has worked hard to ensure teachers, students, and valued educational and community relationships are supported. She also has diligently pursued integration of state academic and career technical standards and collaborated with local community colleges to form dual-credit courses that provide learning opportunities for students in the Fremont, Newark, and New Haven Unified School Districts 

The March 6 conference was attended by middle school, secondary, and postsecondary teachers, counselors, administrators, and industry partners. This award recognizes administrative career technical education (CTE) professionals at the school, district, county, state, or federal level who have demonstrated leadership in ensuring teacher and student success and have made significant contributions toward innovative, unique and effective CTE programs.

Established in 1969, MVROP is a regional occupational program serving students in the Tri-City area by helping them prepare for successful business, medical, and technical careers. Through a partnership with Fremont, New Haven, and Newark Unified School Districts, CTE classes are provided to nearly 4,000 students (high school and adult) each year.
