LIMA — St. Rose Catholic School in Lima has been recognized by the State of Ohio, receiving the Three-Star Step Up to Quality Award.
Step Up to Quality is a rating system for learning and development programs in Ohio, with ratings going from one to five stars. To qualify for a three-star award, a program must require administrators to attend 20 hours of specialized training every two years, hire teachers with higher qualifications, use self-assessments for classroom practice, create activity plans in line with Ohio’s Early Learning and Development Standards and works with families to develop goals for children.
“St. Rose is proud to be a three-star program,” Principal Donna Judy said. “We know that children have approximately 1,892 days from birth until school starts, and every day matters.”
