Fresno County received high marks from the state’s Department of Education with the recent announcement of awardees for California Distinguished Schools.

In total, 13 elementary schools from Fresno County were awarded the title, along with three from Kings County, two from Tulare County and one from Madera County.

According to the CDE website, the awards were given to recognize schools that “demonstrate exemplary achievements” in two categories — closing the achievement gap with impoverished students and exceptional student performance.

“We congratulate the Lincoln staff and celebrate this recognition with them,” wrote the Kingsburg Elementary Charter School District on announcement of the award to one of their schools.

Lincoln Elementary School and the other recipients will be recognized during a ceremony on Feb. 10, 2020 in Anaheim.
