State Schools Chief Tom Torlakson Announces Title I Academic Achievement Award Schools
SACRAMENTO—State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson today announced that 106 public schools will be receiving the 2013-14 Title I Academic Achievement Award.
"I am proud of what these schools have accomplished under often challenging circumstances," Torlakson said. "Their administrators and teachers are committed to giving their students every opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills that will help them in school and throughout their lives."
The Title I Academic Achievement Award is given to schools receiving federal Title I funds as authorized by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. Title I, the single largest federal educational program for K-12 public education, assists schools in meeting the educational needs of students living at or below the poverty line. Of the approximately 10,000 schools in California, more than 6,000 of them participate in the Title I program.
To receive this distinction, the school must demonstrate that all students are making significant progress toward proficiency on California's academic content standards. Additionally, the school's socioeconomically disadvantaged students must have doubled the achievement targets set for them for two consecutive years.
The National Title I Association also presents each year two National Title I Distinguished School Awards per state. The awards are given to one Academic Achievement Award-winning school that has demonstrated exceptional student performance for two or more consecutive years and to one that made the most progress in closing the achievement gap between student groups.
To learn more about Title I awards, please visit the California Department of Education (CDE) Web page at: Academic Achievement Awards.
Dress Code and Hair Cuts
All students are required to wear their uniforms everyday. A uniform will consist of a solid colored shirt (navy blue or white preferred). Any distracting hair cut is also prohibited.
BULLYING: Gulf Avenue is committed to providing an environment that upholds the standards of respect and civility and understands that bullying and hazing are inappropriate, harmful and unacceptable.
Absence and Tardy Policy
ATTENDANCE/ABSENCE: We encourage regular school attendance unless your child is ill or has a doctor’s appointment. If your child is absent, please notify your child’s teacher or the school by written note giving dates and reason for absence.
We encourage your support for this very important safety. We review safety standards about walking to and from school throughout the year and practice daily at dismissal. Each teacher walks the class to a specific gate to avoid congestion.
Please save this letter. Review the rules with your children periodically. We know traffic gets congested around Gulf Avenue Elementary School, but your patience and cooperation can make a difference as we work toward safety for your children.
