Ulloa Elementary receives national distinguished school award
December 7, 2017 (San Francisco) - Ulloa Elementary School is one of up to 100 schools across the country recently chosen as a National Title I Distinguished School. Ulloa received the national recognition for its exceptional student performance.
"We are thrilled to be selected for the National Title I Distinguished School Award. We are very proud of our talented students, outstanding staff and supportive families at Ulloa," said Principal Carol Fong.
The National Title I Distinguished Schools award adds to the list of honors for Ulloa, which won National Blue Ribbon in 2011, California Distinguished School in 2008 and 2011, and California Title I Academic Award from 2001 to 2009.
A project of the National Title I Association, the National Title I Distinguished Schools Program publicly recognizes qualifying Title I schools for the outstanding academic achievements of their students. It highlights the efforts of schools making significant improvements.
The program aims to showcase the success of schools in one of three categories including exceptional student performance, closing the achievement gap, and excellence in serving special populations of students.
School officials will receive the award at the National Title I Conference in Philadelphia in February, 2018
More information about all National Title I Distinguished Schools is available on the National Title I Association website: www.titlei.org.
