The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program
Recognizing Great American Schools Since 1982


The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program recognizes public and private elementary, middle, and high schools based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. Every year the U. S. Department of Education seeks out and celebrates great American schools, schools demonstrating that all students can achieve to high levels. The National Blue Ribbon School award affirms the hard work of students, educators, families, and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging content. The National Blue Ribbon School flag gracing an entry or flying overhead is a widely recognized symbol of exemplary teaching and learning.

Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)

The new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) is the new way that school districts in California receive their school funding.  LCFF law requires every school district to engage parents and the community in creating a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP is intended to be a comprehensive planning tool to ensure the success of our students academically and socially and to keep parents involved in the process. The LCAP must be reviewed and revised annually.  


Each school district’s LCAP must focus on eight priority areas that help all students succeed:

1. Basic Services;  2. Common Core Standards; 3. Student Achievement;  4 Parent Involvement;  5. Student Engagement;  6. School Climate; 7. Access to Broad Curriculum; and 8. Other Local Outcomes.  


The Superintendent and Assistant Superintendent have held meetings with key stakeholders to share the goals and receive input in developing this LCAP.
