    Dear Superintendent Sheehan,

    Congratulations! After an extensive analysis of student data for every public school in California, the following schools in your school district or CMO were clear leaders in getting students to grade level and beyond: Barranca Elementary, Ben Lomond Elementary, Manzanita Elementary, Merwin Elementary, Mesa Elementary, Rowland Avenue Elementary, Sierra Vista Middle, Traweek Middle, Workman Avenue Elementary

    These schools have been named an Honor Roll school for the 2017-2018 California Honor Roll presented by Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE). Honor Roll schools will receive recognition in the press as a leader in student achievement and will be provided with a free banner to display on campus. They will also be featured on our website where educators and policymakers seek out high performing schools so that they can replicate success.
