Posted on 01/12/2023
CCE and CDE logosCésar Chávez Elementary has been recognized as one of the 2023 Distinguished Schools by the California Department of Education. The California Distinguished Schools program recognizes schools for their excellent work in one of two categories: closing the achievement gap and achieving exceptional student performance, based on school performance as indicated on the California School Dashboard. Congratulations to the hardworking students of César Chávez, and thank you to Principal Veronica Dunn and Director Ricardo Perez for their vision and leadership.

Elementary schools and secondary schools are recognized in alternate years, meaning awardees hold this title for two years. Several DJUSD schools have been named as California Distinguished Schools previously, including César Chávez Elementary in 2014.
