STARSSTARS’ Board of Directors  is comprised of a team of business leaders representing different spectrums of the community. These Directors strengthen the HCDE Safe Schools learning environment by providing resources to enhance implementation of the STARS Program.

Working closely with the designated HCDE Safe Schools Learning Environment contact, STARS is a school-based program dedicated to strengthening the learning environment by addressing social issues such as bullying and substance abuse. Currently, the Board of Directors is under the leadership of former HCDE administrator, Lebron Sterchi.

STARS supports schools with professional development (Restorative Practices, Olweus Bullying Prevention, ACE's and RTI2  Behavior Support); student training (MOVE2STAND, peer mediation, conflict resolution, life skills, and anti-bullying); and alternative to full suspension for tobacco and/or alcohol-related offenses.
