Riley, LPHS are among 34 Indiana Gold Star Schools

Information from IDOE

Riley Elementary School and LaPorte High School were named 2018 Gold Star Schools by the Indiana Department of Education on Oct. 11, 2018. Riley is a first-time honoree. Thirty-four Indiana schools received the designation this year.

“Receiving the Gold Star designation is evidence of the strong collaboration exemplified for student success,” said Dr. Jennifer McCormick, Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction. “I want to recognize and commend these schools for understanding the tremendous impact school counselors, entire school teams, and community members have in helping our students become fully prepared for life beyond high school.”

To receive the award, schools undergo a rigorous process to raise student achievement and improve overall student success. Local school-community advisory groups review student data, set student goals, and try to maximize the time and skills of the school counselor.

The official award presentation will take place in November at the Indiana School Counselor Association fall conference.
