school and throughout their lives."

The awards are given to schools receiving federal Title I funds as authorized by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.

Title I, the single largest federal educational program for K-12 public education, assists schools in meeting the needs of students living at or below the poverty line.

According to the state Department of Education, more than 60 percent of the 10,000 or so schools in California participate in the Title I program.

The schools receiving the honors need to demonstrate that all students are making significant progress toward proficiency on state academic standards. Also, the school's disadvantaged students must have doubled the achievement targets set for them for two consecutive years.
