Statement by Dr. Jim D’Agostino, Executive Director, Santiago Charter Middle School:

 

“In 2021 STARS Prep Academy obtained a ‘Use of Facilities’ permit to operate a program on Santiago’s campus. As a public school, Santiago has an obligation to provide access to our facilities for use by the community when not in use for educational purposes. To be clear, Santiago is not affiliated with STARS and STARS is entirely responsible for ensuring their compliance with insurance, safety and background check requirements that apply to their program. We do not in any way participate in, control, provide staff for, or manage STARS’ programs. While some currently-enrolled Santiago students have also chosen to participate in the STARS program, Santiago does not promote participation in STARS. 

 

Providing a safe environment for students is my highest priority. As a member of this community and through my 13-year tenure, I have taken great pride in making sure our students are not only safe but given an environment in which they can thrive. As of today, we are not aware of any misconduct reports against STARS personnel on the Santiago campus. However, as part of my commitment to the safety of our students, I immediately and indefinitely suspended the Use of Facilities permit for STARS following the arrest of the person associated with their program. In addition, Santiago personnel are committed to fully cooperating with authorities as they continue to investigate these very serious allegations."

Over the years, we have been able to meet various non-federally funded needs of our teachers, students and administrators. We would love to continue to provide the extra help throughout this year as well, but we’ll need the help of our community to do it.

We thank you for your support, and we wish all the Santana families, students, faculty, and staff the very best. Elizabeth Dipre
