Superintendent's Award of Excellence
 
 


Superintendent Dr. Jacob A. Chávez presented the Superintendent's Award of Excellence to Jose
Salcido who is joined by his family


At the October 8, 2014 Governing Board meeting, Jose Salcido, P.E. Teacher at Castro Middle School, was awarded the Superintendent’s Award of Excellence.   His nomination states, “All physical education teachers are required to be CPR certified and have their certification renewed every two years.  This is training that many people receive but luckily don’t have to put into practice.  On September 18th, a Castro Middle School student collapsed on his way to the bus after school.  The student was unconscious and not breathing when assistance arrived.  Fortunately, Jose Salcido’s CPR training kicked in and he instinctively knew what to do.  Jose administered CPR until the paramedics arrived and took over.  Both the doctors at the hospital and fire department staff credit Jose and his fellow staff members Cindy Eick, Julia Moreland, and Juan Hernandez, with giving this student another chance.
