Ten Solano County elementary schools, including three in the Vacaville area, have been selected by the California Department of Education for California Gold Ribbon School awards.
The three local schools are Fairmont Charter, Cambridge and Travis, the latter on Travis Air Force Base.
Others were Benicia, Fairfield-Suisun and Travis unified school districts.
Criteria for an invitation to apply for the honor include “a comprehensive description of the school’s signature practices, and a successful application review,” CDE officials said.
More than 1,200 applications were reviewed for completeness by teams of educators from across the state. Applications considered complete moved forward in the process. Officials from the Solano County Office of Education then coordinated campus visits, as required by the CDE.
