Four AUSD Schools Receive Gold Ribbon Awards (04/15/2016)


Alameda – April 15, 2016 – Four elementary schools in the Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) have been designated Gold Ribbon Schools, the California Department of Education (CDE) announced Wednesday.


The Gold Ribbon Schools Award was created to honor schools in place of the Distinguished Schools Program, which is currently on hold as the state transitions to new assessment and accountability systems. Schools applied for the award based on a model program or practice, including standards-based projects and practices that led to gains in implementing state standards and can be replicated in other districts.


In AUSD, the CDE recognized the following schools as Gold Ribbon winners:


• Earhart Elementary School: Math, Science, and Technology with the integration of Music M(MST) Innovative program


• Haight Elementary School: Collaborative Instruction, Intervention, and Supports


• Maya Lin School: Integrated Learning Through Arts and Inquiry


• Otis Elementary School: Literacy Learning Groups


You can see more detail about these programs on the AUSD website.


"What fantastic news it is to have four of our schools win this prestigious award in one year," said Superintendent Sean McPhetridge. "I send my deepest congratulations to the principals, teachers, staff, and students of these schools who have done such phenomenal work teaching and learning in their schools. We are proud of their achievements!"


The CDE recognized 772 elementary schools as Gold Ribbon winners this year; last year the department honored 373 middle and high schools with the designation.


Earlier this year, the Alameda Science and Technology Institute won a national Blue Ribbon Award, and Bay Farm School was also nominated for a prestigious national Green Ribbon Award.
