NEASC Report Released - Awaiting Commission’s Vote

PDF Version of Message Below Available: HERE 
NEASC Report Available: HERE 

As we await the New England Association of Schools and Colleges’ (NEASC) vote to determine the accreditation status of Ware JR/SR High School, the report has been released, and has yielded many positive commendations. The seven standards that the commission looks at to determine whether a public secondary school meets the necessary benchmarks of qualifying for full accreditation are as follows:

  • Core Values, Beliefs, and Learning Expectations
  • Curriculum
  • Instruction
  • Assessment of and for Student Learning
  • School Culture and Leadership
  • School Resources for Learning
  • Community Resources for Learning

The report was compiled by a NEASC visiting committee that utilized a self-study of the seven standards conducted by the JR/SR High School faculty, along with the information gathered during the visiting committee’s time in the building including interviews with students, parents, faculty, staff, and administrators, along with classroom visits. 

I encourage everyone to read the report click here.  There are 42 commendations and 37 recommendations that were identified by the visiting committee.  One of the most powerful statements noted in the report reads as follows, “the dedication of all staff members who strive daily to build a supportive school culture in which students feel cared for, safe, and respected” speaks volumes to the work being done at Ware JR/SR High School.  For others to notice that we have established a safe culture in which students feel cared for, and respected is the foundation that all other work is built upon! 

Thanks to the students, parents, faculty, staff, and administration for all of their hard work throughout the NEASC process!  The school/district will work to address the recommendations of the report as we continue to strive in setting higher benchmarks for ourselves on a daily basis.
