Schools recognized by the California School Recognition Program (Distinguished Schools), Title I Academic Achievement Awards, and the National Blue Ribbon are invited to submit a description of their school’s “signature practice”—a program, practice, event, or activity believed to have contributed significantly to improving student achievement and narrowing the achievement gap at the school.
Instructions for completing the Signature Practice Submission Form

Save the form (DOC) to your desktop, renaming the file with school’s name, i.e. PerfectElementary.doc. Complete the form and submit by E-mail to: TVGHPES@cde.ca.gov. For assistance, call Shobhana Rishi at 916-319-0780.
