Wilson County schools achieved district accreditation through AdvancED in 2010, and the system now plans to renew its accreditation.
AdvancED is the world’s largest education community, serving more than 30,000 public and private schools and districts across the U.S. and in more than 70 countries that educate more than 16 million students.
Accreditation is awarded to schools and districts that deliver quality education to students in all walks of life. The AdvancED Accreditation Process is a clear and comprehensive program of evaluation and external review, supported by research-based standards, and dedicated to helping schools, districts, and education providers continuously improve.
During the 2014-15 school year, Wilson County schools will renew its accreditation. This is a continuous process and will culminate with a visit from the AdvancEd review team in late March 2015.
In order to have accurate and reliable information, Wilson County schools will request feedback from stakeholders, including parents, students and staff members of each school from mid-April through mid-May.
Families of Wilson County schools will receive information in the coming weeks regarding the feedback process. All parents, students and staff members of each school will be given the opportunity to provide feedback about the learning environment in their school.
Parents with students in more than one school may complete questionnaires for each school their children attend. Prior to receiving the information to access the questionnaire, sample questionnaires may be viewed at advanc-ed.org/schoolresources or by visiting the school office.
