National Title I Distinguished Schools Awardees

California's National Title I Distinguished Schools Awardees.

California recognized qualifying federally funded schools for the outstanding academic achievements of their students.

Since 2008, California, in conjunction with the National Title I Association, has selected examples of superior Title I school programs for national recognition through the National Title I Distinguished Schools Program. Schools were selected in one of two categories:

  • Category 1: Exceptional student performance for two or more consecutive years.
  • Category 2: Closing the achievement gap between student groups.

Note: California did not recognize National Title I Distinguished Schools in 2011 and from 2013 to 2016.
