Five Star Diploma Information - Fall 2015

For over a decade, Adams 12 Five Star Schools has awarded the Five Star Diploma to graduating students who have met a number of rigorous academic criteria, including participation and high achievement on state-mandated assessments. The Five Star Diploma signifies a student has completed additional requirements toward high school graduation that are beyond the minimum requirements to earn a high school diploma from Adams 12 Five Star Schools.

In the spring of 2015, House Bill 15-1323 was passed by the Colorado Legislature and signed by the governor. One portion of this new law allows parents to excuse a child from state assessments in English language arts, math, science, and social studies. The new law also precludes a school district from imposing negative consequences, including prohibiting school attendance, imposing an unexcused absence, or prohibiting participation in extracurricular activities on the student or the parent.

Because this new law allows parents to excuse students from certain state assessments, many of the meaningful criteria of the Five Star Diploma can no longer be mandatory, given the requirement that the district not impose negative consequences for students excused from state tests.

Consequently, the Five Star Diploma will be discontinued for the graduating classes of 2019 and beyond. For students in the graduating classes of 2016, 2017, and 2018 who have met the criteria for the Five Star Diploma during the 2014-15 school year as well as prior school years, the Five Star Diploma will still be awarded.
