Two Lodi schools made the California Business for Education Excellence honor roll.

The CBEE Honor Roll identifies and recognizes the highest performing public schools in California that are consistently improving academic achievement, reducing achievement gaps and helping students become academically prepared for college.

Elkhorn School was recognized as a Star School, meaning it is in a high-poverty area but is also a high-performing and achievement gap closing school. It also made the list of honor roll schools with the highest performance for math and science.

Vincent Shalvey Academy was recognized as a high-performing school without significant levels of low-income students.

    Ms Bobin,
    What do you mean by your "Hmmmm...." comment? Do you not believe the CBEE's data? Or is it that you don't believe poor kids can excel in a GATE school? In reading your many posts that champion the underdog, I am surprised to find you to be such an elitist.

    According to CBEE's statistics, over 1/3 of Elkhorn's student population is fits into the Socioeconomic Disadvantaged category. Hmmmm.......

    Elkhorn School? Ditto to Ms. Coe's comments.

    This is LUSD's exclusive private academy. Please tell me this is a misprint.

    This is amazing or correct me if I am wrong. Elkhorn school was recognized as a Star School, meaning it is in a high- poverty area. Who gave the statistics for this award? Elkhorn is the school for gifted and talented students in LUSD, yes some of the students may qualify for low income, but the school is located on North Davis Road approximately 1/4 of a mile south of 8 mile road, and if this is a high poverty area, I would certainly like to know the criterion for "poverty". Elkhorn school has consistently scored above the rest of the district in test scores since the beginning of testing, due to the population of gifted and talented students. They have to pass a test to be eligible to attend there, and then it is by lottery. Parents bring them to this school from all over the district. Give me a break on this award!

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. 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?
