We received our good news affirming our building’s re-accreditation. It is now “certified” that Yellow Springs High School -- having met the requirements established by the AdvancED® Accreditation Commission and Board of Trustees -- is hereby accredited by the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement. This accreditation is valid through June 30, 2018.
While approximately half of all schools in Ohio have dropped their accreditation efforts over the years, our pursuit of this re-accreditation effort should give us the intellectual freedom (and encouragement) to “break ranks” from an outdated 20th Century model of education and pursue the challenging and uncommon goals of the district’s 2020 Plan. While we will certainly take risks along the way in this path of continuous and original improvement, the rewards can be incredible too.
