What Are Shining Stars?

Shining Stars are DCSD staff member/s and schools nominated for outstanding service by the parents and/or caregivers of students receiving special education services.

How Are Shining Stars Recognized?

  • All nominees will receive a notification of their nomination/s, a Shining Star certificate, and recognition via district communications, school communications (where possible), and on the DCSEAC website.

  • Staff: Staff nominations will be entered into a drawing for 1 of 10 gift prizes (sponsored by Developmental Pathways).

  • Schools: One elementary, one middle, one high school, and one charter school will be selected to win prizes valued at $250 towards a special education curriculum (sponsored by Developmental Pathways).
