California School Recognition ProgramRecognizes California's exemplary schools, teachers, and classified school employees for achievement and for advancing excellence in education.
The California Department of Education (CDE) California School Recognition Program (CSRP) includes a series of distinct events recognizing awardees in the following programs: California Distinguished Schools, California Exemplary Arts Education, California Exemplary Physical Activity and Nutrition Education, California Exemplary Career Technical Education, California Green Ribbon Schools, California Teachers of the Year*, Civic Learning, Classified School Employees of the Year*, National Blue Ribbon Schools, National ESEA Distinguished Schools, and Superintendent's Award for Excellence in Museum Education*.
Beginning in 1986, the CSRP gives exceptional schools and school leaders the opportunity to gather and share their Model Programs and Practices and their special skills which have contributed to their success. There are many details that go into the eligibility and selection of these awardees. All of the award programs recognize sustained student achievement, excellence in environmental program design, or superior job performance, and community involvement. CSRP Awardees are recognized at a CSRP Awards Ceremony held during the spring.
* CSRP Awards that have a separate awards event.
We are thankful for our California School Recognition Program Sponsors who help to make the CSRP a success! The CSRP would not be successful without the generous support they provide. We appreciate their willingness to support our efforts to recognize California's exemplary schools, teachers, and classified school employees for achievement and for advancing excellence in education.
A sponsorship in the CSRP is a commitment to an ongoing partnership with public education by helping ensure that the dream of a world-class public education lives on in California.
