Hodge School Excels
For the second year in a row, Hodge Elementary School received the Title I Academic Achievement Award. Only 56 schools in California are receiving this prestigious award for sustained progress in academic improvement among low-income students. "These schools serve students facing real challenges, and they’ve risen to meet them through hard work and dedication. It is inspiring to see their students achieve more in the classroom today so they can enjoy more opportunity in the years to come,” said State Superintendent Torlakson.
