INDIANAPOLIS -

More than 100 schools have been named 2017 Gold Star Schools by the Indiana Department of Education. The designation recognizes schools that have worked to raise student achievement and improve overall student success.

The IDOE says recipients create school-community advisory groups that:

  • review student data
  • set specific student goals
  • commit to maximizing the time and skills of the school counselor

Eighty-two schools appeared for the first time in 2017. The program was launched in 2004 and nearly 300 elementary, middle and high schools have been recognized.

Superintendent of Public Instruction Jennifer McCormick says "receiving the Gold Star designation is evidence of the collaboration it takes among educators and staff for students to be successful. I want to recognize and commend these schools for understanding the tremendous impact school counselors and school and community members have in helping our students become fully prepared for life beyond high school."
