California is Awarded Five Star Leadership/Sportsmanship
Wednesday, November 30, 2011
Over the summer California school district was awarded the “Five Star Leadership/Sportsmanship Award,” from MSHAA. Only 28 schools within Missouri have acquired this achievement.
The school has received multiple banners, which now hang in the gyms of each school buildings. Also, the school gets a digital banner to put on the home page of the school website. The award shows our school takes part in MSHAA activities with good leadership and sportsmanship from coaches, sponsors, and head directors of MSHAA activities.
All schools were sent a packet of information last fall concerning the program. There are many requirements for this award, such as the attendance by one faculty member to MSHAA Sportsmanship Summit on Aug. 13, at Hickman High school in Columbia. Second, the school must meet all MSHAA Leadership School Requirements.
Next, is the completion of NAIA’s Champions of Character online test by all coaches, head sponsors, and head directors of MSHAA activities. Also, the school administrator needs to attend the MIAAA meeting in the spring. DVD training is required of parents, participants, and coaches in all activities including fall, winter, spring, and non-athletic sports in which the school is registered for. This is still under review with the school, to see how this will be achieved.
Now, administrators have the opportunity to attend follow up meetings, that provide the chance to swap activity ideas.
