On April 13, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced that 772 California elementary schools are being honored under the Gold Ribbon Schools Awards Program. Three schools within the Martinez Unified School District made the Gold Ribbon list: John Muir Elementary, Las Juntas Elementary, and John Swett Elementary.

Nearly 6,000 elementary schools were eligible to apply this year. Schools applied for the award based on a model program or practice that their school adopted which includes standards-based activities, projects, strategies, and practices that can be replicated by other local educational agencies. The award recognized middle and high schools last year.
