California Gold Ribbon Schools Program

This program honors some of the state's most exemplary and inspiring public schools. The California Gold Ribbon Schools Award was created to honor schools while the California Distinguished Schools Program is on hiatus as California transitions to new assessment and accountability systems. For more information regarding the recognition program, visit the California Department of Education Web site here.

State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced that 758 elementary schools in California have been selected as 2016 California Gold Ribbon Schools. Contra Costa County is home to 37 of the elementary schools selected, most of any county in northern California.
