Spring Lake Elementary was the recipient of the Golden Award for being a Positive Behavior Support (PBS) Model School.
The Golden School Award is given annually by the Florida Department of Education to recognize public schools with exemplary volunteer programs. Hours donated in all forms of volunteering, i.e. mentors, tutors, advisors, and advocates are to be included. A Golden School must meet the following guidelines:
A staff training program on volunteerism in which a minimum of 80% of the school staff have participated during the school year.
A School Volunteer Coordinator who has been designated to provide leadership for the school volunteer program through recruitment, placement, training, and supervision of participants.
A total number of hours in volunteer service that equals twice the number of students enrolled in the school. These hours of volunteer service will be in the areas that support instruction.
