Lee County School District Seeks AdvancEd Accreditation
Lee County School District Seeks AdvancEd Accreditation
AdvancED District Accreditation provides nationally recognized accreditation for the district and all of its schools. To earn AdvancED District Accreditation, the district must: 1) meet the AdvancED accreditation standards: 2) implement a continuous process of improvement; and 3) host an external review team once every five years.
 
“District accreditation is a rigorous process that demonstrates to our students, parents, and community that we are focused on raising student achievement, providing safe and enriching learning environments, and maintaining efficient and effective operations staffed by highly qualified educators,” stated Superintendent Evans.
 
Using the AdvancED Standards for Quality School Systems as a framework, the district will begin the process by conducting a thorough self assessment of its strengths and opportunities for improvement. The district will host an AdvancED Quality Assurance Review team comprised of trained professionals from across the nation and state. The review team will visit the district in the fall of 2010 to evaluate the district’s self-assessment, determine the degree to which the district meets the AdvancED accreditation standards, and make an accreditation recommendation.
 
“Lee County is a great district”, stated Superintendent Evans. “We believe strongly that the AdvancED District Accreditation Process will make us even better. Students win when the entire district commits to examining all of its processes and systems to determine what more we can be doing to benefit the students we serve. This is the essence of the accreditation process.”
 
You are cordially invited to participate in Lee County Schools’ District Accreditation process. Parents and interested community members can learn more about the District Accreditation Process at www.advanc-ed.org. For more information, please contact Superintendent James Evans, Jr. at (606) 464-5000 extension 130.
 
 
AdvancED is the parent organization for the North Central Association commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI), the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI), and the National Study of School Evaluation (NSSE). NCA CASI and SACS CASI are accreditation divisions of AdvancED. Dedicated to advancing excellence in education worldwide, AdvancED provides accreditation, research, and professional services to 23,000 public and private schools and 4,500 school districts worldwide.
