After overcoming many obstacles, Lakeland STAR School/Academy was set to open less than a year from the creation of its governance council. A fledgling board began the process to plan and build an “airplane” designed to take a population of students with special needs to new heights. It became apparent several committees would have to be formed to divide and conquer the multitude of tasks involved in this endeavor. We needed seven committees — curriculum, budget, hiring, student recruitment, building, fundraising and public relations — and each was just as critical as the next. (subscriber access)

  • A STAR is born
    When a child is born, parents have a vision of who that child will be as an adult. They imagine grand scenarios of watching their offspring compete as a professional athlete, or perhaps even running the country. As time passes, reality sets in and the grandiose hopes and dreams are replaced with more achievable goals. They hope their child gets good grades, goes on to college and becomes a professional of a different kind, finds love and lives a happy, independent life. (subscriber access)
