Charles Elementary Receive Four Star Designation

The Indiana Department of Education (DOE) recently released its second round of 2015-16 Four Star Schools. The Four Star Schools designation is designed by the DOE to recognize the best schools in Indiana.

To receive Four Star designation, a school must receive an “A” on the state’s A-F accountability system, have excellent ISTEP pass rates and an overall high graduation rate (if applicable), and show success in closing achievement gaps. Including round one, a total of 248 schools received the award.

I am proud of the schools in Senate District 27 that have received this designation. Quality K-12 education leads to strong performance in higher education and trade industries. This results in a strong workforce, which helps grow Indiana’s economy.

Below are the schools in SD 27 that have received this designation:

Saint Michael School in Brookville

Charles Elementary School in Richmond
