STARS Award

BPS is also the proud home of two national STARS award winners:

Fairglen Elementary - 2009-2014
Beth Cavallaro

MILA Elementary - 2010-2015
Sara Fernandez & Gary Odom

MILA and Fairglen are currently the only two elementary schools in the state of Florida to receive national acclaim as a National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) STARS school.

To earn that distinction, the physical education teachers submitted a sizable portfolio of narrative and evidence compiled over nearly a year which was reviewed by an independent panel of judges from around the country.  The NASPE STARS program recognizes a school’s total physical education program as all teachers in the department demonstrate how their program and teaching meet national standards and guidelines.  In the seven years of the NASPE STARS project, only 44 schools in the nation have achieved this elite status. The criteria for this award are based on the essential elements necessary for a quality physical education program – content based on the National Standards for Physical Education, educationally and developmentally appropriate instructional strategies and teaching skills, adequate facilities and equipment that are safe and appropriate for the age and abilities of the students and that enable the students to participate in the maximum amount of active time on task, and classes taught by certified physical educators, among others.   Brevard is very proud of both Fairglen and MILA for achieving this elite award.
