Four BOUSD Schools Are Recognized for High Achievement and Student Success
Posted on 05/03/2017
The Brea Olinda Unified School District (BOUSD) is pleased to announce that Brea Olinda High School and Brea Junior High are among several hundred in the state being honored with the California Gold Ribbon Schools Awards Program for making gains in implementing the academic and performance standards set by the State Board of Education. The state Department of Education created the award to honor schools in place of the California Distinguished Schools Program, which is on hiatus while California creates new assessment, accountability and continuous improvement systems. The award rotates each year between elementary and secondary schools. Statewide, 477 campuses applied for the award, and 275 were selected. The procedure involved each school selecting a Model Program/Practice to highlight their excellence and were judged on how it referenced the District’s Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) and how it is distinguished from the district’s model. 

Additionally, Arovista Elementary School and Laurel Elementary Magnet School of Innovation and Career Exploration have been selected by Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE) as two of 1,866 public schools in California to receive the title of 2016 Honor Roll school. The Honor Roll is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools and highlight successful practices that improve outcomes for students. Schools receiving this distinction from leaders in the California academic and business communities have demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time and reduction in achievement gaps among student populations. Brea Olinda Unified Superintendent Dr. Brad Mason congratulated the schools saying, “We are thrilled to receive these validations that are indicative of how hard our teachers, administrators and parent community work on behalf of the students in BOUSD. Our schools are exceptional. Our educators are inspired. Our students are driven. Our parents are supportive. Our staff is second to none.”
