Four more schools in the Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District have been invited to apply for the California Distinguished Schools honor, according to a notice on the PVPUSD website.
Lunada Bay, Mira Catalina, Montemalaga and Rancho Vista elementary schools are all eligible for the honor awarded by the California Department of Education, according to the school district.
Previously, the district announced that Cornerstone at Pedregal, Pointe Vicente, Silver Spur and Vista Grande elementary schools were nominees.
Schools “invited to apply for the Distinguished School honors must meet a variety of eligibility criteria, including designated federal and state accountability measures based on the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and the state’s Academic Performance Index requirements,” according to the news release.
The honorees will be announced in late March.
Elementary and secondary schools are honored as Distinguished Schools in alternate years.
