District Earns Accreditation Recommendation!

AdvancED logo
We are very excited to announce that the AdvancEd External Review Team was very impressed with our district and is recommending to the AdvancED Accreditation Commission that the Bedford Public School System earn the distinction of accreditation by AdvancEd!

This is a district wide distinction and applies to each of our schools: Douglas Road Elementary, Jackman Road Elementary, Monroe Road Elementary, Bedford Junior High School and Bedford High School.

Our Index of Educational Quality Overall Score: 264.63

  • More details can be found in this explanation sheet about the Index of Education Quality (IEQ).

    We would like to thank our AdvancED visiting team of Dr. Alyce LeBlanc, Jennifer Michos, Sue Muntz, and Cherie Godfrey. This team used a diagnostic process to stimulate and guide continuous improvement with a focus on:

         Teaching & Learning Impact: "The Bedford Public School System advocates for the success of each and      every student as evidenced by a wide range of educational support and enrichment options and      opportunities."

         Leadership Capacity: "The Bedford Public School System at every level has a growth mindset that      embraces improvement and professional learning."

         Resource Utilization: "The Bedford Public School System has come out of a deficit elimination plan two      years ahead of schedule."


The review team identified the following Improvement Priorities for Bedford Public Schools:

     Develop and implement a guaranteed, standards-based curriculum at all levels that is tightly aligned      vertically and horizontally, and establish a consistent protocol to monitor and adjust to meet the needs of      learners.

     Establish and implement a system of balanced assessment (formative, common/interim, summative) to      ensure curriculum being articulated is being met.

     Develop and implement embedded processes, procedures and protocols, including training, that lead to      the systematic analysis and use of data by professional and support staff to inform decision-making,      improvement planning, and modification of the educational program.

     Employ a systems approach to planning, including the strategic plan, district improvement plan, school      improvement plans, and school level action plans that ensure input opportunities from appropriate      stakeholders as measurable benchmark targets, and monitoring protocols.

You can view the entire External Review Exit Report shown to the school board at a Special Meeting on April 1, 2015. AdvancED will be providing us with a formal written report within 30 days. These recommendations will now be used in our District Improvement Plan and District Strategic Plan and allow us to remain focused on improving student achievement!

We also will file our Accreditation Progress Report to show how our district plans on addressing our four Improvement Priorities within the next two years. If we can document that these have been, or are being met, this will improve our Index of Educational Quality scores.

We would like to thank our District School Improvement Team members (Kim Ortiz, Erin Hirsch, Dawn Keiser, Julie Eaton, Kim Eltschlager, Kathryn Effler, Lisa Heartz, Scott Earl, and Amy Driehorst) for their dedication to this very important process! Their efforts were, in turn, supported by numerous others in our district as we went through this accreditation process. We would also like to thank every single person at Bedford Public Schools, for all they do, each and every day, that truly earned us this honor!
