Fremont school honored
Submitted By Kristen Yasukawa, ACOE
Sheila Jordan, Superintendent of Alameda County Schools, congratulates J. Haley Durham Elementary in the Fremont Unified School District for receiving a 2012 - 2013 Title I Academic Achievement Award from the California Department of Education. Durham Elementary was among 56 California public schools honored for their sustained progress in academic improvement among students who live at or below the poverty line.
"Through budget cuts and changing education standards, Durham Elementary continues to innovate teaching and learning to ensure quality education is accessible to all students. Because they have welcomed diversity and championed the assets of all students, their culture of inclusion stands as a model for us all as we strive to have every child live up to his or her potential," said Superintendent Jordan. "Equity in education is a priority for Alameda County and I am proud that the County is represented by the Durham school community's award-winning accomplishments."
Durham Elementary will be honored at a regional award ceremony in May, along with the California Distinguished Schools and California's nominees for the National Blue Ribbon Schools.
