On Monday, February 10, several San Diego Unified elementary schools were honored at the California School Recognition Program Awards Ceremony, at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif.

San Diego Unified’s honored schools for 2020 are:

  • Birney Elementary
  • Crown Point Elementary
  • Dingeman Elementary
  • Ericson Elementary
  • Hancock Elementary
  • Hawthorne Elementary
  • Jerabek Elementary
  • Jonas Salk Elementary

"These outstanding schools don't just educate students; they also provide the young people of California the tools they need to be successful after graduation," said State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond in the California Department of Education's news release. "Thanks go to all the staff at these schools—teachers, administrators, classified employees—and parents, who are working together to provide high-quality educational experiences for all of their students."

Schools that applied to the Distinguished Schools program were eligible based on their performance and progress on the state indicators as described on the California School Dashboard. Indicators include test scores, suspension rates, and conditions and climate.
