Congratulations to our Dayton High and Middle School staff, students, parents, and community on receiving Accreditation from AdvaneEd. This accreditation process was completed yesterday.
Accreditation is a voluntary method of quality assurance developed more than 100 years ago by American universities and secondary schools, and designed primarily to distinguish schools adhering to a set of educational standards. The accreditation process is also known in terms of its ability to effectively drive student performance and continuous improvement in education. While accreditation is a set of rigorous protocols and research-based processes for evaluating an institution’s organizational effectiveness, it is far more than that. Today accreditation examines the whole institution—the programs, the cultural context, the community of stakeholders—to determine how well the parts work together to meet the needs of students.
Accreditation is a significant achievement pronouncing an institution’s quality of education, as well as a remarkably enriching process for the institutions recognizing the tremendous competitive and performance gains it affords.
The GROWTH occurring at Dayton Middle and High School has been AMAZING! ACT scores are up! Explore scores are up! Plan scores are up! College and Career Readiness numbers are up! KPREP scores are up! MAP scores are up! Graduation rate is up! Student engagement is up!
I sincerely appreciate everyone’s efforts to provide the very best for our students. They deserve it!
Way to GROW DHS and DMS!
