Three Lodi Unified School District schools are among those recognized recently by the California Business for Education Excellence for raising student academic achievement and reducing achievement gaps.

The 2010 honor roll includes 1,221 California public elementary, middle and high schools that have been recognized by California's business community for having demonstrated consistent high student academic achievement and making significant progress toward closing achievement gaps among their students.

The annual award is supported by numerous businesses and organizations including State Farm, Macy's, Edison International, Wells Fargo, Southern California Auto Club, the California Business Roundtable, and United Way of the Bay Area.

The Honor Roll is comprised of two different awards, the "Star Schools" Award (477 schools) and "Scholar Schools" Award (744 schools).

Aspire River Oaks Charter and Middle College High School were placed on the "star" list, while Elkhorn School received "scholar" status.

CBEE Star Schools are those with significant populations of socio-economically disadvantaged students that have shown a significant increase in grade-level proficiency over four years and are outperforming expectations for every subgroup of students. CBEE Scholar Schools are schools that are showing significant levels of academic achievement, but do not have a significant socio-economically disadvantaged student population, according to a press release.

    William Dawes: That's about right. It is not really a surprise that Elkhorn would get such an award because they do have the top students in the district. Truthfully, I would expect nothing less.

    Well If I created schools where I can take the cream of the crop, I would get top awards too.

    Elkhorn does "not have a significant socio-economically disadvantaged student population" That's unfortunate.

They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
