INDIANAPOLIS — Two local Catholic schools — St. Thomas the Apostle School and St. Vincent de Paul School, both of Elkhart — are on this year’s list of Four Star Schools.

According to the Indiana Department of Education, to be on the list of Four Star Schools in Indiana, a school must be in the top 25th percentile of schools in Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress Plus (ISTEP+) testing results. This year’s 313 Indiana Four Star Schools made the list based on their ISTEP+ scores from the 2011-12 school year.

Along with St. Thomas and St. Vincent, 12 local public schools are also on this year’s list. An earlier article did not include the local Catholic schools.

Civil rights attorneys said they hope to exonerate the former chairman of a bribery conviction by obtaining unreleased emails from a federal judge reprimanded for sending racist correspondence. Former Montana U.S. District Judge Richard Cebull sentenced Birdinground (“bird-in-ground”) to three years in prison in 2003. The 79-year-old Crow leader had pleaded guilty to taking kickbacks from a car dealership. When Birdinground sought to retract his plea and go to trial, Cebull rejected the request, a decision upheld on appeal. Cebull resigned last year after an investigation into a racist email he sent involving President Barack Obama. (AP Photo/Billings Gazette, Larry Mayer)
