CA Department of Education logoNearly two dozen LA Unified schools were among the 424 elementary schools cited by the state today as California Distinguished Schools.

The announcement came from State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson who said, “I applaud these strong, thriving schools that are making such impressive strides in preparing their students for continued success.”

The 2014 California Distinguished Schools Program recognizes schools that have made progress in narrowing the academic achievement gap.

Among the LA Unified schools honored, nine are traditional public schools, another nine are charters, and five are magnet schools.
