The Board of Supervisors on Tuesday honored C.A. Jacobs Intermediate School and the Mare Island Technology Academy with designations spelled out in resolutions.
The middle school on North Lincoln Street, C.A. Jacobs also was honored with a Title 1 Achievement Award. A Title 1 school is one, under federal guidelines, that has a majority of low-income students.
“C.A. Jacobs didn’t just show us a model program; they showed us a model school!” Jay Speck, the county superintendent of schools, said in the resolution.
The focus of the gold ribbon awards is to recognize California schools that have made “tremendous” gains in the carrying out of academic content and performance standards adopted by the state Board of Education for all students, including English learners.
