District Earns Accreditation Recommendation!
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
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!
