Lee Elementary Receives the CA Distinguished School Award

Lee Elementary School has been honored by the California Department of Education as a 2018 California Distinguished School. Lee was selected based upon their exceptional gains in implementing academic content and performance standards adopted by the State Board of Education.

The staff at Lee has made a firm commitment to providing students rigorous and differentiated instruction in reading. This commitment is fulfilled by our devout use of the Reading Workshop model of instruction and our on-site Intensive Reading Lab (IRL), which provide children with access to engaging, meaningful instruction. This school-wide use of the Reading Workshop model and the services provided in the IRL directly impact student achievement. In conjunction with intense, meaningful professional development and teacher collaboration, teaching and learning is at it’s highest at Lee.

Lee strives to assure that students acquire the skills needed to be successful, life-long learners, prepared to accept the challenges of a culturally diverse society.
