Three San Diego schools nominated for Blue Ribbon award

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The state Department of Education Tuesday nominated three San Diego County schools to be national Blue Ribbon campuses.

The nominees are:

-- Edison Elementary School, San Diego;

-- Palomar Elementary School, Chula Vista; and

-- San Diego International Studies, San Diego.

They are among 35 schools nominated statewide for the Blue Ribbon award, which honors high-performing and improving campuses.

"These schools all share a deep commitment to the education and well-being of their students," said state Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson. "We've recognized them on the state level, and now I hope their outstanding work and remarkable progress will be further spotlighted nationally."

Federal guidelines call for nominees to be in the 85th percentile statewide for students scoring proficient or advanced in English-language arts and mathematics on the state assessments, or have disadvantaged children make up 40 percent of the student body and be among the top 10 percent in test score improvement over the last five years.
