Redesignating California Schools to Watch

Resources to help you support your staff and maintain your Schools to Watch status


START EARLY! The application for redesignation in 2025 is available NOW!


Welcome, California Schools to Watch educators! 

Redesignate as a 2025 School to Watch

California Schools to Watch must redesignate every three years to share how they are making things better for all students and dealing with challenges that arise.

Submit Early
As the program has grown, it has become necessary to review redesignation applications earlier in the year so we have time to meet the needs of all the great schools in the program. 

Please support our nonprofit and get an early start on the redesignation process! While the deadline is October 1, 2024, we encourage you to submit your application as soon as you comfortably can.

Request Application Instructions

If you do not see the fields above, you may access the form directly.

Everything you need to submit your redesignation application is included in the instructions. Next, sign up for your school’s Self-Study Rating Rubric.


Now you’re ready to begin! Simplify things by taking your original application and updating it as needed. Redesignation is worth it. It keeps you current as a School to Watch and reminds staff members, students, and parents that they are part of something special.

After you submit your application you can apply to present and register your team for the CLE 2025 Annual Conference.

Thank you for being part of this amazing statewide network of 200 powerhouse schools!
