undefinedThe Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) Five Star School Award was created by the Commissioner’s Community Involvement Council and is presented annually to those schools that have shown evidence of exemplary community involvement. In order to earn FIVE STAR school recognition, a school must show documentation that it has achieved 100% of the established criteria in the categories of: Business Partnerships, Family Involvement, Volunteerism, Student Community Service, and School Advisory Council. Many schools may have strong programs in one area, but outstanding schools develop strong programs in all five areas. When these five components collaborate, they paint a picture-perfect successful program that reflects a school’s commitment to the pursuit of educational excellence!

Each Five Star School Principal received a certificate and a flag to proudly display at their school. For a list of the 2018-2019 Five Star School Award Winners, visit
