St Michael Catholic School announced as a 4 STAR SCHOOL!
On May 26, 2017
INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Department of Education announced today the 2016-17 Four Star Schools. The Four Star Schools designation is designed by the Department to recognize the very best schools in Indiana.
“Receiving designation as a Four Star School signifies a pursuit of academic excellence among both the students and the administration,” said Dr. Jennifer McCormick, Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction. “I am honored to recognize these Four Star Schools and their leadership for their hard work and dedication to preparing their students for a bright and prosperous future.”
Created in 1988, the Four Star School Award has been in existence for nearly 30 years. To receive Four Star designation, a school must receive an “A” on the state’s A-F accountability system, have excellent ISTEP pass rates, carry overall high graduation rate (if applicable), and show success in closing achievement gaps.
St. Michael Earns An "A"!
We are extremely proud to announce that St Michael has earned a grade of A for another year.
Established in 1999, the General Assembly passed Public Law 221-199 which created a performance-based accountability system. In response to this legislation, the State Board of Education (SBOE), IDOE, and the Education Roundtable collaborated over the next two years to establish the administrative rules outlining the accountability system. These rules were finalized and in place by the end of 2001. In 2015, SBOE established new metrics for Indiana’s student-centered accountability system. The metrics when into effect beginning with the assessment of the 2015-16 school year.
