Green Ribbon 2017/2018
Congratulations to TVUSD's Newest Green Ribbon Award Schools! We are proud to announce that this year, Temecula Valley Unified had three schools that received California Green Ribbon Schools recognition award! Those schools and their award levels are as follows:
· Rancho Vista High School: Gold
· Ysabel Barnett Elementary: Silver
· Paloma Elementary: Silver
Rancho Vista HS is one of only four gold level winners in the state! Only 31 total schools and districts were recognized in the state and TVUSD has 3!
The California Green Ribbon Schools recognition award honors schools, school districts, and Institutes of Higher Education for excellence in resource efficiency, health, and wellness, and environmental and sustainability education. The recognition award is part of a larger effort to identify and communicate practices that result in improved student engagement, academic achievement, graduation rates, and workforce preparedness; and reinforces federal efforts to increase energy independence and economic security.
Rancho Vista, Barnett, and Paloma join Great Oak in receiving this award bringing Temecula Valley’s awards up to four in the past two years! This is quite the accomplishment for these sites and for our district as a whole as it highlights the conservation efforts individual sites have implemented as well as what the district has done to assist those sites in being more environmentally friendly.
