Another distinction for Frank Ledesma Elementary in Soledad

Frank Ledesma Elementary has just been named among the 106 schools in California that will receive the 2013-14 Title I Academic Achievement Award.

The Title I Academic Achievement Award is given to schools receiving federal Title I funds, which assist schools in meeting the educational needs of students living at or below the poverty line. Of the approximately 10,000 schools in California, more than 6,000 of them participate in the Title I program.

“I am proud of what these schools have accomplished under often challenging circumstances,” California Superintendent of Schools Tom Torlakson said in announcing the award. “Their administrators and teachers are committed to giving their students every opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills that will help them in school and throughout their lives.”

Frank Ledesma earned the California Distinguished Award last week, also for closing the achievement gap. Those guys, they're on roll! Way to go!
