Gold Status Process for End of 2020-2021 STLP Season 

It’s been a long year. It’s been a tough year. STLPs across Kentucky have demonstrated resiliency and grit to stay involved and participate in STLP events throughout the year. To that end, we’re happy to announce that all current Gold Status STLPs will automatically retain their Gold Status for the 2021-2022 STLP Season without any additional submissions.

For schools that do not currently have Gold Status but are interested in requesting consideration for Gold Status, please review the “Request Gold Status” options below. All new Gold Status requests should be submitted no later than July 1, 2021.

Process to Retain Gold Status

All STLPs with current Gold Status at the end of the 2020-21 school year will automatically retain their Gold Status throughout the 2021-2022 STLP season. No additional information is required at this time; however, please be prepared to revisit your “Retain Gold Status” application before May 2022. Have a great summer!

Schools that have already achieved Gold Status should select “Retain Gold Status” on the Gold Status form and check off requirements to confirm that all information is complete. Please be ready to describe any highlights, accomplishments, and/or favorite projects from this school year. Check out the rubric via the Super Sheet.

Identify how your STLP has earned at least 7 STLP Level Up badges during the current year (remember, Level Up badges reset each July 1).

Evidence of STLP Involvement for Requesting Gold Status

Thanks for your interest in achieving Gold Status for your STLP. Below you will find the temporary process for requesting Gold Status for the 2021-22 STLP season. The process is abbreviated in an attempt to help STLP Coaches wrap up a difficult year with a less strenuous application.

Who should request Gold Status? STLP groups should apply for Gold Status if it is their first time requesting Gold Status, if they achieved Silver Status last year, or if the STLP missed a year of Gold Status by failing to submit to retain Gold Status from the previous year.

Updated Gold Status Request Process (due by July 31, 2021)
Step 1:
Submit your STLP to the Get Recognized database

Step 2: Visit the Request Gold Status form and complete the requested info (school info, STLP Coach contact info)

Step 3: Include a written update that addresses the following questions about your STLP:

  • why does your STLP wish to achieve Gold Status?
  • how did your STLP include as many students, educators, administrators and community members as possible this year?
  • what STLP events/competitions/modules did your school participate in during 2020-21?
  • how will your STLP grow to embrace the concept of “STLP is your whole school” in 2021-22

Step 2:  Using the criteria below (and found in the rubric via the Super Sheet),  create an electronic presentation documenting what the STLP is doing.  Schools may use any method they choose to create the presentation – get creative or keep it simple.  The only technical requirement is that the presentation must be viewable online (or is downloadable) and can be reviewed by judging committee using readily available devices  (i.e. no special software is required).

The major components of evidence to be documented include (from rubric):

  • targeting the STLP mission and goals
  • describing types of STLP projects/events from the year
  • detailing recruitment efforts
  • describing the communication avenues used to generate school/community awareness of STLP opportunities & accomplishments
  • stating the vision/purpose/goals of your STLP
  • discussing how the STLP represents your school outside of the building

Step 3: Identify and explain how your STLP earned at least 7 STLP Level Up badges during the current year.

Step 4: Provide short description of how your students have acted as representatives of STLP during the current year.

Your presentation URL will need to be submitted with this form. That URL should not link to any password protected webpages.  Like STLP, these presentation are always best when they are student designed and student driven.  All presentation should follow good digital citizenship guidelines, contain NO personally identifiable information about students, and follow all pertinent copyright requirements.
