Five local schools named on 2010 list of California Distinguished Schools

Five Central Coast schools have been named on the 2010 list of California Distinguished Schools.

The State Superintendent announced Monday that 484 state elementary schools have been selected for this year's list. Four Santa Barbara County schools and one San Luis Obispo County school have made this year's list. Those schools are Alisa Elementary, Cold Spring Elementary, Peabody Charter, Santa Barbara Community Academy and Charles E. Teach Elementary School.

"It is an honor to recognize the schools, and the students, parents, teachers, and administrators who helped earn this most prestigious distinction," said State Superintendent, Jack O'Connell, in a press release. "The 2010 California Distinguished Schools have been selected because of their academic excellence and for narrowing achievement gaps. These schools have persevered despite state budget cutbacks that have cut deeply into the budgets of local school districts. I encourage educators throughout our state to review the signature practices that Distinguished Schools are using to improve student achievement."
