These San Fernando Valley schools just earned ‘Distinguished’ honors

Dec 20, 2019 by

14 LAUSD campuses in the San Fernando Valley and several from surrounding districts are now 2020 Distinguished Schools.

San Fernando Valley public schools have more than just holiday cheer and a break to celebrate at the end of the year this year.

Twelve Los Angeles Unified School District campuses in the 818, and several from Glendale, Burbank and the Santa Clarita Valley, were deemed a Distinguised School by the state Department of Education.

Bottom line: They are doing their homework, in all kinds of ways.

More than 100 elementary schools in Los Angeles County and 35 in Orange County were among 323 learning institutions statewide that earned a spot on the “2020 Distinguished Schools” list drawn up by the California Department of Education, it was announced Wednesday.

“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,” State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond said. “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.”

Placement on the list generally requires a school to exhibit “exceptional student performance” or closure of the achievement gap from one academic year to the next, according to the DOE.
