The Rialto Unified School District and its Casey Elementary School were just awarded the California Green Ribbon Award. California Green Ribbon Awards (CGRA) are presented each year for excellence in whole school sustainability and environmentally friendly, student-focused initiatives.
On Friday, Casey Elementary School was awarded a Silver Ribbon and the Rialto Unified School District (RUSD) was awarded a Gold Ribbon. It is also important to note that members of the RUSD staff played a key role in the application process that resulted in these prestigious awards.
State Superintendent of Schools Tom Torlakson who participated in the awards presentation in Rialto on Friday said, “These schools follow and advance a proud California tradition of caring for the environment and preserving our state’s stunning, natural resources that are celebrated and known throughout the world.”
