School System Meets Expectations for District Accreditation

Based on the review submitted by the Quality Assurance Team of AdvancED in January, the AdvancED Accreditation Committee has unanimously recommended that District Accreditation be awarded to the Fayette County School System. This means that if the accreditation committee approves the recommendation, the school system and all of its schools will be granted a five-year term accreditation.

“On behalf of the Quality Assurance Review Team, SACS CASI and AdvancED, I want to commend and congratulate you, the professional staff, the board of education and stakeholders throughout the community on this achievement to be awarded District Accreditation as a Quality School System. SACS CASI and AdvancED look forward to our continued association with Fayette County Schools and our partnership to improve student learning through accreditation,” said Mark A. Elgart, president and chief executive officer of AdvancED in a letter to Superintendent John DeCotis.

AdvancED District Accreditation provides a national protocol for school systems committed to systemic, systematic and sustainable continuous improvement. The district accreditation process invites school systems to collaborate in reviewing the quality of the district’s systems and their contributions to teaching and learning. The process supports, enhances and stimulates growth and improvement throughout the school system.
