The Indiana Four Star Awards program was established to recognize schools that have demonstrated academic excellence during the past year. Schools that place in the State’s upper quartile (25%) in student attendance rates, mathematic proficiency scores, language arts proficiency scores, and the percent of students passing both Language Arts and Mathematics are eligible to receive a Four Star Award. Schools must meet all legal standards and also make AYP under NCLB for the appropriate year. This award is a non-monetary award given on an annual basis. Receiving a Four Star Award is an honor which the State recognizes by issuing an award certificate suitable for framing and display in a school.
