Four Ventura County schools have been named California Distinguished Schools for 1988.
The local schools were among 124 statewide chosen by the California Department of Education for high performance or significant improvement on California Assessment Program tests and other measures.
Named earlier this month by State Supt. of Schools Bill Honig, the honored facilities were the Redwood, Sequoia, Colina and Los Cerritos intermediate schools, all of them middle schools in the Conejo Valley Unified School District.
The winning schools were compared with others in the state with similar student demographics and judged distinguished by a committee of state and local educators.
