    State Schools Chief Tom Torlakson Congratulates California Schools Recognized as 2017 National Blue Ribbon Schools


    SACRAMENTO—State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson today congratulated 23 California public schools that have been chosen as 2017 National Blue Ribbon Schools. This coveted award honors public and private elementary, middle, and high schools where students achieve high learning standards or are making notable improvements in closing the achievement gap.

    “Congratulations to all the schools on this list and to the educators, parents, students, and communities for helping students believe in themselves, set high goals, and realize their potential,” Torlakson said. “You are shining examples of the terrific things happening in California public education, and we must keep our momentum going because the California Way is to move forward and upward.”

    The California winners are among 342 schools announced this morning by the U.S. Department of Education. In its 35-year history, the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program has presented this award to more than 8,500 schools.

    All schools are recognized in one of two performance categories, based on all student scores, subgroup student scores, and graduation rates:

    • Exemplary High Performing Schools are among their state’s highest performing schools as measured by state assessments or national tests.
    • Exemplary Achievement Gap Closing Schools are among their state’s highest performing schools in closing achievement gaps between a school’s student groups and all students over the past five years.

    Public schools are nominated by top education officials in each state, the Department of Defense Education Activity, and the Bureau of Indian Education.

    Creators of America’s First Computer Science Immersion Schools to Bring Renowned Program to Local Students


    Hacienda, CA --  Hacienda La Puente Unified School District is pleased to announce its partnership with Code To The Future, the nation’s leading Computer Science program for magnet and theme-based schools.  At the March 9th, 2017 HLPUSD Board of Education Meeting, the Board approved the agreement between Hacienda La Puente Unified School District and Code To The Future, to provide coding classes for elementary students in a Computer Science Immersion Program, from March 14, 2017 through June 30, 2022. 


    Code to the Future specializes in coding lessons geared to elementary students and offers an established curriculum, coaches for the classrooms on a rotating basis, and professional development.


    District officials selected Workman, Wedgeworth, Bixby, Del Valle, Baldwin, Cedarlane Academy, and Valinda School of Academics to become Computer Science Immersion Schools. Students at these schools will have the opportunity to learn fundamentals of Computer Coding as part of their daily curriculum. Through this 21st century literacy, students will develop critical thinking, creativity, communication, and collaboration skills.


    Through the partnership with Code To The Future, teachers will be able engage students through block and text-based coding activities to enhance their education experiences through Computer Science. Students will have another avenue to apply problem solving, team building, and presentation skills as they collaborate and share their thinking process with peers.


    In regards to the partnership, Andrew Svehaug, CEO of Code To The Future said, “Hacienda La Puente students will have a great opportunity to learn computer science in a fun and engaging way while also developing the skills they need to be successful in our digital future.” The district will launch its seven Computer Science Immersion Schools this August. These schools will continue to offer the same, outstanding instruction in Reading, Writing, Math, Science, Social Studies, Music, and PE, all of which are foundational content to these campuses. Coding will be an exciting, integrated enhancement to the excellent learning already taking place at these schools.
