Two AUSD Schools Receive Gold Ribbon Awards

Wood Middle School and ASTI Recognized by State

 

Alameda – April 19, 2017 – Two secondary schools in the Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) have been designated Gold Ribbon Schools, the California Department of Education (CDE) announced Tuesday.

 

The Gold Ribbon Schools Award was created to honor schools in place of the Distinguished Schools Program, which is currently on hold as the state transitions to new assessment and accountability systems. Schools applied for the award based on a model program or practice, including standards-based projects and practices that led to gains in implementing state standards and can be replicated in other districts.

 

Last year the CDE gave the award to elementary schools, including four in AUSD (Otis Elementary School, Maya Lin School, Earhart Elementary School, and Haight Elementary School). This year the CDE honored secondary (middle and high) schools. The  two AUSD schools that received the designation are:

 

Wood Middle School for its STEAM-Integrated Learning Through Inquiry program

 

Alameda Science and Technology Institute (ASTI) for its Early College High School program

 

You can see more detail about these programs on the AUSD website.

 

"I am always thrilled when our schools are recognized by the state Department of Education,” said Superintendent Sean McPhetridge. "It is testament to the hard work of teachers, staff, students, and families. It serves as a reminder to us all that Alameda is truly blessed with excellent and innovative educational programs for our youth.”

 

In March, ASTI also won a Green Ribbon award from the CDE.  Both ASTI and Wood Middle School will be recognized for their accomplishments at a luncheon hosted by the CDE in Santa Clara next month.
