Sacramento Calif.—State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced the 287 schools that are honored under the Distinguished Schools Program.

The schools honored implement outstanding educational programs and practices that help California students realize their potential, and put them on a path to achieve their dreams.

Schools that applied were eligible based on their performance and progress on the state indicators as described on the California School Dashboard. Indicators include test scores, suspension rates, and English learner progress.

Schools were also eligible to apply for a California Exemplary Program Award in Arts Education, and/or Physical Activity and Nutrition Education, which will be announced at a later time.

These award winners represent examples of not just excellent teaching, learning, and collaborating, but also highly successful school climate efforts, ranging from real time conflict resolution to positive behavior intervention.

Schools in the north state that were honored were Humboldt County’s Arcata Elementary, Union Street Charter, Tehama County’s Evergreen Union, Evergreen Elementary, and Yuba County’s Marysville Joint Unified, Covillaud Elementary.
