Going for Gold

June 21, 2018

FISHERS, IN: The Indiana Department of Education has announced that all Hamilton Southeastern Schools have been designated as Gold Star Schools. According to the IDOE, Gold Star Schools have exhibited “the highest level of school counseling professionalism in Indiana,” and HSE Schools is one of the largest districts in the state to have all its schools certified.

To receive the Gold Star award designation all HSE schools participated in a nine-month, rigorous process that reviewed student data, established student outcome goals, aligned efforts to counseling standards, and committed to maximizing the time school counselors spend in direct service of students. More than 600 local volunteers and stakeholders representing diverse perspectives supported the process through steering teams and advisory councils.

HSE Schools Superintendent Dr. Allen Bourff celebrates the accomplishment by noting, “the Gold Star awards demonstrate the tremendous commitment educators, counselors and the public have to local students.  I am delighted all of HSE Schools have been recognized for their outstanding collaborative efforts to support academic advising, career and college readiness, and social emotional learning.  Together with parents and the community, we can continue to positively impact student success.”

Comprehensive school counseling efforts rely on a strong community safety net where every adult is responsible for guiding students. HSE Schools will continue to build on this momentum by exploring teacher advisory programs, parent advisory programs, and community advisory programs. 
The Gold Star award presentation will be held at the annual Indiana School Counselor Association conference in November.
