Ruby Drive Elementary is excited to announce that they have received the Gold Ribbon Award given by the California Department of Education.
The California Gold Ribbon Schools Award Program was created to honor schools who have made exceptional gains in implementing the academic content and performance standards adopted by the State Board of Education for all students, including English learners. These include, but are not limited to, the California Standards for English Language Arts, California English Language Development Standards, California Standards for Mathematics, and the Next Generation Science Standards.
2016 is the first year in which elementary schools were given the opportunity to apply for this recognition. California elementary schools that have made tremendous gains in implementing State Board policies and their Local Control Accountability Plan were invited to apply for the Gold Ribbon Schools Award. Model programs and practices include standards-based activities, projects, strategies, and practices that schools have adopted.
"These schools shine as bright beacons for others, putting forth an exemplary effort to ensure that every student is ready for 21st century college and careers," State Superintendent Tom Torlakson said. "California teachers are developing an education model for the nation, training the students of today to be the problem-solvers, inventors, and pioneers of tomorrow."
Congratulations Ruby Drive Elementary!!!
