Welcome to Cedarville Elementary
Kindergarten through 3rd Grade
  2014 National Blue Ribbon School

From the desk of the Principal…

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan held a
news conference on Tuesday, September 30, 2014,
and announced that Cedarville Elementary is among
the 337 schools nation-wide to be recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School for 2014. Cedarville Elementary is identified as an Exemplary High Performing School. This acknowledgment is the very highest of awards that any school can receive.

Secretary Duncan made this announcement live via the Department's USTREAM channel   http://www.ustream.tv/channel/education-department  at 1:30 p.m. The Department will honor 287 public and 50 private schools at a recognition ceremony on Nov. 10-11 in Washington, D.C.
"These great schools are fulfilling the promise of American education—that all students, no matter their name or zip code, can flourish when schools provide safe, creative, and challenging learning environments," Secretary Duncan said. "National Blue Ribbon Schools are models of consistent excellence and a resource for other schools and districts. We celebrate them for their tireless effort and boundless creativity in reaching and teaching every student."

The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private elementary, middle, and high schools where students either achieve very high learning standards or are making notable improvements in closing the achievement gap. The award affirms the hard work of students, educators, families and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging content. All schools are recognized in one of two performance categories, based on all student scores, subgroup student scores and graduation rates (at high school):

•Exemplary High Performing Schools are among their state’s highest performing schools as measured by state assessments or nationally normed tests. Student subgroup performance and high school graduation rates are also at the highest levels.

•Exemplary Achievement Gap Closing Schools are among their state’s highest performing schools in closing achievement gaps between a school’s subgroups and all students over the past five years. Student subgroup performance and high school graduation rates for each subgroup are at high levels.

We first received word of the possibility of this honor a year ago when Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction, Glenda Ritz, called to let me know that she had nominated Cedarville Elementary to the U.S. Department of Education as an Exemplary High Performing School. The U.S. Department of Education followed up with an email of congratulations and a 22 page application to complete from Aba Kumi, National Blue Ribbon Schools Program Director. The application was submitted in late February and from that point we were in a holding pattern until it was officially confirmed on Tuesday.
