Accountability legislation and school improvement initiatives are built upon the active involvement of parents, guardians, business people and other community members, whose contributions significantly help to improve our schools. The legislative intent is to return the responsibility for education to those closest to the students—schools, teachers and families. The Five Star School Award was established to recognize that community involvement is fundamental to student success.
This symbol of achievement is presented each year to those schools that have shown evidence of exemplary community involvement. Eligible schools can apply for and receive the award annually, but a new application must be completed and reviewed each year regardless of the school’s previous award status.
In order to qualify for this award, a school must meet 100 percent of the criteria in the categories of Business Partnerships, Family Involvement, Volunteers, Student Community Service and School Advisory Councils. The school must also create a portfolio of documents that provides evidence of compliance with each of the criterion in the nomination form. This portfolio must be sent with the nomination form to the District School Volunteer Coordinator. Certificates for schools winning the 2018-19 Five Star School Award will be issued during the 2019-20 school year, pending release of school grades.
