A Vision for Learning
Over the past several years, the Commission on Public Schools has been involved in an effort to reflect on the value of Accreditation and re-design the process for elementary, middle, and high schools.
To better meet the changing needs of member schools, "A Vision for Learning" was developed. This new process responds to concerns and suggestions made by member schools by reducing the time required to complete the Accreditation process and by allowing schools to align the process to existing school improvement efforts. Elements of the re-designed process include a Self-Reflection completed by the school, a Collaborative Conference held with a small team of peer educators, the development and implementation of a school growth plan, a reflective summary report completed by the school, and a scaled down Decennial Accreditation visit.
