Distinguished Schools Signature Practices

A California Distinguished School - the logo for California designated Distinguished Schools.


Signature Practices were submitted for 2014 California Distinguished Schools designations.

This Web application also displays Signature Practices for schools submitted from 2010 through 2013 California Distinguished Schools designations.

The selection process required schools to provide an in-depth description of two signature practices implemented at the school that the school believes contributed to the success of their students.

During an intensive site visitation by a trained team of external educators, additional evidence about the effectiveness of the practices was gathered and analyzed.
