Ten local schools this week won outstanding 2005 No Child Left Behind Title I Achieving Schools awards.
Winners include Emerson, Fremont, Gompers, Hill, Hoover, Hudson, Hughes, Kettering, MacArthur and Mann.
Each winning school achieved at least double its schoolwide API growth target and double its growth target for disadvantaged students.
Each school underwent a rigorous California Department of Education review with school visits by evaluators from county offices.
The awards honor the highest achieving Title I schools. At least 40 percent of all students enrolled in these schools must be from low-income families.
