Nelda Mundy Elementary School is one of 3 schools in Solano County to be invited to apply for Distinguished School status. The California Distinguished School Award identifies and honors those schools that have demonstrated educational excellence for all students and progress in narrowing the achievement gap. In order to be invited to apply for Distinguished School honors, schools must meet a variety of eligibility criteria including designated federal and state accountability measures based on the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) and the Academic Performance Index (API) requirements. Each school receives a site visit by a team of educators to validate the full implementation of the submitted practices. On March 21st, Nelda Mundy Elementary School received their site validation visit from a team lead by the Solano County Office of Education. After a full day visiting classrooms, validating their signature practices, and interviews with key stakeholders, the Solano County Office of Education made their recommendation that the school move forward in the evaluation process. The California Department of Education will make the final determination and notify the school later this Spring.
