FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LOS ANGELES--The San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) was named a finalist for the 2013 Broad Prize for Urban Education, The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001NzJ1j0Q8VyFHjESW63ozAbBN0V-RUnx_Xf7oCqgj5chSrDr0RIV_atJZ2iHebRi6w8LK5TL0HXI0FdIHkZ_og6ipv_W4zAoEL9c4hXNQLcvwYAJK_rHkSg==> announced today. As one of four districts in the country to be recognized for student achievement gains, SDUSD stands to win at least $150,000 and as much as $550,000 in college scholarships for its high school seniors if the district wins the top prize.



The Broad (rhymes with "road") Prize for Urban Education<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001NzJ1j0Q8VyFlgdfypXc-LdWJP2olq2pkYQ5XfZDwylPjG4NfPxISNIV7lCh19s_qp__qM33rSCdHvXgf-Ii5LsJC878IqHQL_Fx0uawnRaAkF7oryiEtGA==> is an annual $1 million award--the largest education prize in the country--that honors urban school districts that demonstrate the greatest overall performance and improvement in student achievement while reducing achievement gaps among poor and minority students.



The other finalists this year are: the Corona-Norco Unified School District in Riverside County, Calif., Cumberland County Schools, N.C., and the Houston Independent School District. Corona-Norco and Houston were finalists last year. This is the first time in the award's 12-year history that San Diego and Cumberland County have been finalists.



The winner of the 2013 Broad Prize will be announced on Wednesday, Sept. 25 in Washington, D.C. at the Library of Congress. The winning district will receive $550,000 in scholarships for its students, and the three finalist districts will each receive $150,000 in scholarships, for a total distribution of $1 million.



"San Diego should be commended for its steadfast commitment to improving student achievement," said Eli Broad, founder of The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation, which awards The Broad Prize. "But even while these finalist districts are moving in the right direction, there is still a long road ahead before we can truly celebrate high levels of academic success. And as we look at other urban districts across the country, there is significantly more progress that needs to be made."



Seventy-five of the nation's largest urban school districts<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001NzJ1j0Q8VyFbmLniixTQv_ESubqfb6yIFhuVvItCh_BRiR2r1ZkJnvxwu8fjGKB7hI0hn_xXhSq9plRzbhfzIwOXJj3caodsLImy1gP51sNqheWKlmLRixgQEr2LJ2pPw9jp_hDOJom8QFvqwB9h-X1QqXZk0Rvl> were automatically eligible and considered for The Broad Prize. School districts cannot apply or be nominated.



This year's four finalists were selected by a review board<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001NzJ1j0Q8VyElJ5XRR0Za1wAHdE6FYH8X6OM4mvhjAcTNsWpJshe0Jp3R9Ep5-iiybo7iFeF8IY2ZQayaFqMf52se8Kyidh21n7R9DeWjl0ATzk-awmg7QuzSmVgf6ovdNvCYCtnXRNa7VgGRrZbdgOUgZoQZQmcjtHBGMnG8CD0=> of 17 prominent education researchers, policy leaders, practitioners and executives from leading universities, education associations, civil rights advocacy organizations, think-tanks and foundations. The review board evaluated publicly available academic achievement data that were compiled and analyzed by MPR Associates, Inc.<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001NzJ1j0Q8VyG7jqztwv5ssZFozrka5Iz8jUfeWnhpXwLh7seA3IO4XKaqmVl36tbjznY0HAnyLFTamCV2MwU20ygQLZa3VTrSCa4Ysik5rJQwJugS_edCyw==>, a leading national education research consulting firm.



In selecting the finalists, the review board looks for urban school districts that show the greatest overall performance and improvement in student achievement while reducing achievement gaps among poor and minority students. Among the data they consider are SAT, ACT and Advanced Placement participation rates and outcomes, graduation rates, state assessments in reading, math and science, the National Assessment of Educational Progress, student demographics including poverty, state test rigor, per pupil expenditures and district size. The Broad Foundation does not play a role in selecting the finalists or the winner.



Among the reasons that SDUSD was chosen as a 2013 Broad Prize finalist:

* San Diego students outperform students in peer districts statewide. In 2012, San Diego students performed better than students in other California districts that serve students with similar family incomes in elementary, middle and high school reading, math and science, according to The Broad Prize methodology.

* San Diego narrowed Hispanic and low-income achievement gaps. In recent years, San Diego narrowed achievement gaps between its Hispanic students and the state's white students in elementary, middle and high school reading, math and science and between its Hispanic and white students in elementary, middle and high school reading and science and in elementary and high school math. San Diego also narrowed achievement gaps between its low-income students and the state's non-low-income students in elementary, middle and high school science and in elementary and high school reading and math.

* Low-income, Hispanic and African-American high school students in San Diego improved more in science than much of the state. In recent years, San Diego was in the top 30 percent of California districts for increasing the percentage of its low-income, Hispanic and African-American high school students who performed at the highest achievement levels on the state science assessment. For example, between 2010 and 2012, the percentage of low-income students performing at the highest achievement levels increased by 8 percentage points in high school science, while the increase for the rest of California was just 3 percentage points during that period.

Over the next two months, teams of educational researchers and practitioners led by the education consulting company RMC Research Corporation<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001NzJ1j0Q8VyF4hNL0y34BBhJXrUVTi0SWoYxqxu6jUPqaF5U8vWHbf_O7eVCaSMGBBVWTyA6lpjFQ8DsJ6je4Z9H6GFqezBwp0cuwIW4STuHJatRcEtVsY6xb65fUlFGRaEn8gVP4Uvw=> will conduct a four-day site visit in each finalist district using a research-based rubric<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001NzJ1j0Q8VyG_yA5nX7Usk4vDeqvKAa0kifuoBzB-AKwiO2PqU3pm9XPQZRvFFmo-MsCQdGSbvSQHCTBCVSXXZvXbUyk_PBh5YC72zqrl7ItLAND1lb_WfprO_2r40rrcUSLp36_WJKkvVDFy9v5OW2KICtYb4Y9M> for district quality to gather qualitative information, interview district administrators, conduct focus groups with teachers and principals and observe classrooms. The teams will also interview parents, community leaders, school board members and union representatives. A selection jury<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001NzJ1j0Q8VyGGBtFUfTkGAlUW0hKSpwfBLjuenX4Q3WvY1LUYX8oefmqEZ1L0d6sypZtmWdBm2sF8R3LXl2vQkjYoki9dCpV0lE7kBlR4PFkV5JbG4sPd1yHPrFtftMYqZXdxtRaNULPR1ShEm97JkGFkr_imLD8W-24MYgsj_R8=> of prominent individuals from business, industry, education and public service will then choose the winning school district after reviewing both the student achievement data and the qualitative site visit reports.

MEDIA ADVISORY from the San Diego Unified School District, March 25, 2013

The Masons of California have helped make public education a focal issue in California since their 1920 introduction of Public Schools Week, now celebrated statewide as Public Schools Month each April. The donation to support teachers and students at San Diego public schools is presented as part of the fraternity's annual Public Schools Month kickoff celebration.

Through the Raising A Reader Literacy Partnership, California Masons are bringing the award-winning Raising A Reader literacy and family engagement program to elementary school classrooms in the lowest- performing public schools throughout the state, building strong family relationships and creating a new legacy of literacy. Masons' donations are enabling this acclaimed program to reach thousands of California public school students for the first time.

The fraternity's Investment in Success Scholarship Program, which launched in 2011, provides college scholarships for deserving high school seniors who demonstrate an active pursuit of education in spite of significant obstacles. Students who receive these scholarships demonstrate exemplary character, drive, and scholastic potential, despite challenges in their homes or communities.
