Over the years, every school in the district has received California Distinguished School and Gold Ribbon honors. Los Alamitos is also one of four districts in the nation earning a spot on the Advanced Placement Honor Roll for seven straight years. The district currently ranks among the top 10 percent in California in state test scores in English language arts and math. And just a day earlier, Jack L. Weaver Elementary won a National Blue Ribbon.

Those were just a few of the accolades Kropp highlighted during the annual State of the District Breakfast, held Sept. 29 and co-hosted by the Los Alamitos Education Foundation.

U.S. Congressman Alan Lowenthal and State Senator Janet Nguyen were featured speakers at the breakfast, which also included remarks from Los Alamitos Mayor Shelley Hasselbrink, Rossmoor Community Services District Director Tony DeMarco and Seal Beach Mayor Sandra Massa-Lavitt.

“It was such an honor for me to share our district highlights with the broader community,” Kropp said.
