71 Brevard Public Schools Earn FDOE's "Five Star School Award"


On Monday, the Florida Department of Education announced the names of Florida schools that have earned the Five Star School Award for the 2015-16 school year.

71 out of 82 Brevard County schools received the award, accounting for more than 10% of Florida schools earning the Five Star School Award.


The award is bestowed upon schools that are committed to incorporating family and community members into the school environment to enhance student learning. Statewide, nearly 700 schools earned the recognition.


“Family and community involvement is essential to student success, and I am grateful for the parents, caregivers and community members who invest their time in our state’s schools.” said Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart. “When school leaders and educators engage the community, the result is higher academic achievement and more students prepared for future success.”

To earn Five Star School recognition, a school must show that it has achieved all of the benchmarks and criteria in five categories – Community/Business Partnerships, Family Involvement, Volunteerism, Student Community Service and School Advisory Council. Schools must also earn a grade of “C” or above or a school improvement rating of “Maintaining” or “Improving” for the year being recognized.
