Clovis Unified was recognized as a California Business for Education Excellence (CBEE) honor roll district for the first time in 2013.
Only seven other districts in the state received the award, and Clovis Unified is the only district north of Los Angeles to receive the recognition.
Thirty-two Clovis Unified schools were named to the CBEE 2013 honor roll list as well. These schools demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement over time and a reduction in achievement gaps in students.
Eleven other school districts throughout the central San Joaquin Valley also had schools that received awards from CBEE in one of three categories.
The honor roll is comprised of three awards: Star schools, STEM schools and scholar schools. Star schools are high poverty, high-performing schools that reduce the achievement gap. STEM schools are in the top 100 schools for math and science, and scholar schools are honored for showing academic achievement, but don't have a significant socioeconomically disadvantaged student population.
