On September 1, 2006 we introduced a new level of membership in the DEN: STAR Discovery Educator. STAR Discovery Educators are the most active participants in the community and in return, they receive all sorts of additional benefits.
As we approach the end of the 2006-2007 school year, we want to make sure that all of our STARs keep their special status for next year. So…
If you joined the DEN before September 1, 2006, report at least two events you conducted that took place during the 2006-2007 school year and you will maintain your STAR status for the 2007-2008 school year.
If you joined the DEN on or after September 1, 2006, you will automatically enter the 2007-2008 school year as a STAR. During the 2007-2008 school year you will have to report at least two events to keep STAR status for the following year.
When we announced the new level of DEN membership on September 1, 2006, we stated that a review process would take place at the end of July to determine STAR status for the following year. We are extending that deadline until the end of August 2007 so our current STARs who will be conducting trainings, leading grade-level team workshops, etc. in August will have the chance to stay active and keep their STAR status for the 2007-2008 school year.
If you are not sure if you reported your events for this school year, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any other questions regarding your STAR status for next year, post a comment or send me an email.
Make sure you stay a STAR! We have a lot planned for next year. More webinars. More events. More promotions. More chances to connect, share and discover with your colleagues.
