ADVANCING OUR WAY TO ACCREDITATION!

We have completed all the necessary paper work for our AdvancEd Accreditation.  Currently we are waiting for a visit from the AdvancEd team of evaluators.  The team will be coming to our school on Monday, March 6th. They will be in school all day Tuesday, March 7th going from class to class to see how our children are learning.  The team wants to meet some members of our Board of Directors, teachers, administrators and parents.  You will be hearing more about this as we draw nearer to the actual March visit. March 8 they will give us an oral report on what they have seen.

If you are interested in learning more about AdvancED, go to http://www.advanc-ed.org/about-us   Here is what they said about their organization:

“We are AdvancED

AdvancED is the largest community of education professionals in the world. We are a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of Pre-K-12 schools and school systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential. While our expertise is grounded in more than a hundred years of work in school accreditation, AdvancED is far from a typical accrediting agency. Our goal isn’t to certify that schools are good enough. Rather, our commitment is to help schools improve.

Combining the knowledge and expertise of a research institute, the skills of a management consulting firm and the passion of a grassroots movement for educational change, we serve as a trusted partner to 34,000 schools and school systems—employing more than four million educators and enrolling more than 20 million students—across the United States and 70 other nations. AdvancED was created through a 2006 merger of the Pre-K-12 divisions of the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI)—and expanded through the addition of the Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC) in 2012.”
