It’s quick and easy, just enter your email address on the National Page and voila! You’re Done! For those of you that are not STAR members at the present time, it’s NEVER too late. The only way to become a STAR is to apply.
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.
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 Lance Rougeux 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.
