State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson today announced additional honors for 496 of the 779 elementary schools that were recognized as Gold Ribbon Schools last month.

Gold Ribbon Schools that are also Title I schools were recognized as Academic Achieving Schools. This distinction is given only to schools receiving federal Title I funds that aid in meeting the educational needs of students living at or below the poverty level.  Mary Farmar Elementary School is one of these schools.

“I’m delighted to honor these schools and programs, which are doing a tremendous job preparing our students for 21st century opportunities and graduating lifelong learners in the process,” Torlakson said. Congratulations to Mary Farmar!
