Accreditation Commission Recognizes JPPSS Continuous Improvement

The AdvancED Accreditation Commission recently reviewed the progress report filed by the Jefferson Parish Public School System and granted continuation of the school system’s accreditation term which recognizes the school system’s dedication to educational improvement.

The school system filed its progress report as a required component of its five-year accreditation term which began when a 10-member committee reviewed the district over 3 days in December 2009.  The committee submitted a Quality Assurance Review report that outlined some strategies the school system should execute over the next five years in order to remain accredited by SACS CASI.   The first component of the QAR, the accreditation progress report, has been reviewed and accepted.
