YALE ELEMENTARY NAMED NATIONAL BLUE RIBBON SCHOOL
Richardson ISD announced today that Yale Elementary School has been named as the district’s nineteenth No Child Left Behind National Blue Ribbon School, a recognition determined by the United States Department of Education (USDE).

“The district is collectively proud of Yale for earning this honor and carrying on RISD’s tradition of excellence,” said interim RISD Superintendent Patti Kieker.  “Congratulations to the students, parents and staff for this recognition of their consistently high performance.”

Schools can earn No Child Left Behind National Blue Ribbon School recognition for being either academically superior in their states or demonstrating dramatic gains in student achievement.  Yale was initially nominated by the Texas Education Agency.

The USDE based this designation on site evaluation visits, student academic performance and comprehensive nomination information.
 
In 2005, Canyon Creek and Mohawk Elementary schools marked the seventeenth and eighteenth RISD schools to earn National Blue Ribbon honors.
