Five Star School Awards - p.12
The Five Star School award is a symbol of achievement presented each year to those schools that have shown evidence of exemplary community involvement in five specific areas:
Business Partnerships, Family Involvement, Volunteers, Student Community Service, and School Advisory Councils.
In order to qualify for this award, a school must have double the number of volunteer hours compared to the number of students enrolled, achieve 100% of the criteria in each of the five categories, have a school grade of “C” or above and also have a portfolio that documents the achievement of each criterion.
Schools meeting these qualifications annually will receive the highest designation for community involvement from the Florida Department of Education.
Community involvement is vital to student success!
