INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Department of Education is recognizing 13 schools for their work in creating an environment of success.
The department announced the 2019 Gold Star Schools Wednesday. The award is granted to schools that raise student achievement and improve overall student success.
“I commend Indiana’s 2019 Gold Star schools for understanding the positive impact school counselors, entire school teams, and community members have in helping our students become fully prepared for the future,” state superintendent Dr. Jennifer McCormick said.
