Submit Application by July 31, 2023

Achieving STLP Gold Status is a challenging, but rewarding, optional activity that should involve your whole STLP.

Schools that embrace STLP throughout the year, and are prepared to detail the value of their STLP, should consider applying to ACHIEVE Gold Status. STLP schools that currently have active Gold Status (see 2022-2023 list below) should apply to RETAIN their Gold Status for the upcoming year.

Gold Status applications should be student developed.
