5 RCSD Schools Win Gold Ribbon Awards

Clifford, Hoover, Roosevelt, Roy Cloud, and Taft were 5 of 9 schools in San Mateo County named as California Gold Ribbon Schools by the California Department of Education! The California Gold Ribbon Schools Award was created to honor schools in place of the California Distinguished Schools Program, which is on hiatus while California creates new assessment and accountability systems. Nearly 6,000 elementary schools were eligible to apply this year, and 772 schools in the state were named as Gold Ribbon Schools. Roosevelt's Award was announced in June, after the CDE press release below was printed. Congratulations to students, staff and parents at these schools!
