Assistant Director of Federal Programs
The U.S. Department of Education developed the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program to recognize public and private K–12 schools based on overall excellence — academically or on their progress toward closing achievement gaps.
We nominate up to seven schools every year based on assessment data. These schools complete the Blue Ribbon Schools application on the U.S. Department of Education website.
