National Blue Ribbon Schools
Each year, the U.S Department of Education (DOE) honors National Blue Ribbon Schools, based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. John and Judy Goolsby Elementary School was one of only 342 schools nationwide selected as a National Blue Ribbon School for the 2018-2019 school year.
Shining Stars Schools
There are 27 Shining Stars Schools in CCSD. These high-poverty, high-performing schools have significantly outperformed the State in serving ALL kids, with an emphasis on closing the opportunity gap.
Rising Stars Schools
These schools meet the criteria for state level intervention or federal Title I school improvement funds. The State Department of Education creates this list of Rising Stars Schools as a starting point for identifying schools for supports and interventions.
Title I Schools
Title I is the federal education law that provides supplemental funding to elementary and secondary schools for programs and services to help economically disadvantaged students to succeed. CCSD schools with 60 percent or greater students in the free and reduced-price lunch program receive these supplemental funds.
CCSD has two National Title I Distinguished Schools. Walter Bracken STEAM Academy and Gordon McCaw STEAM Academy have been named National Title I Distinguished Schools by the National Title I Association. Out of 61 schools throughout the U.S., they are the only schools in Nevada to receive national recognition for exceptional student achievement in 2017.
