At AdvancED we believe system accreditation is like a huge fulcrum that can leverage improvement across an entire system. There is no question that the school and the classroom are at the heart of teaching and learning. System accreditation, however, has the power to nurture and support individual school improvement, and the same time unify school improvement and align it with overall system improvement goals so that the system’s schools are moving in one direction together, on the same page.
System leaders engaged in AdvancED System Accreditation will:
- Take stock of themselves in relation to a set of research based quality standards
- Establish a vision, assess their current reality, implement and improvement plan, monitor progress and evaluate results
- Enhance best thinking with the insights and perspectives of an external review team.
AdvancED provides an effective engine for systematizing and maximizing district improvement efforts. System accreditation recognizes that increasing student achievement involves more than improving instruction. It is a result of how well all the parts of the education system – the district, school, and classroom – work together to meet the needs of students.
Systems Accreditation can be used by school districts, corporations and diocesan.
