Placer County Schools Earn Gold Ribbon Award

05/22/2015 10:37AM ● Published by Steven Jack

State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson has announced that 193 middle schools and 180 high schools have been honored under the state’s new Gold Ribbon Schools Awards Program, which is temporarily taking the place of the California Distinguished Schools Program. 

“These schools are academically successful, vibrant, and innovative centers of learning and teaching,” Torlakson said. “They provide great examples of the things educators are doing right—embracing rigorous academic standards, providing excellence and creativity in teaching, and creating a positive school climate.”

In Placer County, the following schools received the award:

  • Wilma Cavitt Junior High
  • Western Sierra Collegiate Academy
  • North Tahoe High
Schools applied for the award based on a model program their school has adopted that includes standards-based activities, projects, strategies, and practices that can be replicated by other local educational agencies. The new award is recognizing middle and high schools this year and elementary schools in 2016.
