From March 19 to 21, 2018, AdvancED conducted its Engagement Review for Performance Accreditation at Arnold Public Schools. During this time, the three person team with AdvancED reviewed documentation, observed classrooms, and interviewed students, staff, board members, and parents to gain a better understanding of the school district and what it does on a daily basis. At the end of their three day process, the team compiled a final report and rating based on AdvancED standards.
Some areas recognized for exceeding expectations include supporting students in their futures and career planning while making community connections, establishing defined roles and responsibilities, and adjusting operations and procedures to improve performance of the school. Other strengths include longevity of staff, use of technology, and allocating resources with identified needs and priorities for the district in a responsible manner.
