Dear Parents and Guardians,
Every ten years schools are required to go through an accreditation process. The New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) is the governing body for this accreditation. Our Decennial visit by NEASC will be in November of 2021. In the years prior to the Decennial visit, schools are required to perform a number of steps. Presently we are in year one.
In year one of the Accreditation cycle, the school reflects on its alignment to the NEASC Standards. The purpose of the Self-Reflection is to gather and examine sufficient evidence to evaluate the school’s alignment to the Standards. The Self-Reflection phase and related data collection informs the school’s plan for growth. It is viewed as a research and reflection step to help the school sharpen its vision and action steps for continuous improvement.
One of the responsibilities we have is to conduct surveys from our Families, Students and Staff. The surveys provide external perspective to help assess the school’s alignment to the Standards for Accreditation.
We are asking our SHS families to kindly participate in the NEASC survey by clicking on the link provided below. This survey should take approximately 20 minutes.
Thank you, in advance, for your cooperation and support.
