Ten OMSD schools will be honored under the State’s Gold Ribbon Schools Awards Program.
The District is proud to celebrate: Berlyn Elementary School, Buena Vista Arts-integrated School, Edison Elementary School, Elderberry Elementary School, Howard Elementary School, Kingsley Elementary School, Lehigh Elementary School, Monte Vista Elementary School, Ramona Elementary School, and Sultana Elementary School.
The California Gold Ribbon Schools Award was created to honor schools in place of the California Distinguished Schools Program, which is on hiatus while California creates new assessment and accountability systems. Nearly 6,000 elementary schools were eligible to apply this year. Schools applied for the award based on a model program or practice their school has adopted that includes standards-based activities, projects, strategies, and practices that can be replicated by other local educational agencies.
Congratulations to each of these ten schools, including their students, staff, parents, and communities.
