"I am very happy.  Kudos to the teachers.  We have a lot of work to do to continue our forward path.  We are working hard on improving attendance," said Superintendent Rita Bishop.

This is the first year of the state's new accreditation standards.  They are designed to promote continuous achievement in all schools, close achievement gaps and expand accountability beyond overall performance of Standards of Learning tests.

Under the state board’s revised Standards of Accreditation, schools are evaluated on school quality indicators grouped in three categories: academic achievement, achievement gaps, and student engagement and outcomes.  Performance on each indicator is rated at one of the following levels:

  • Level One: Meets or exceeds state standard or sufficient improvement
  • Level Two: Near state standard or sufficient improvement
  • Level Three: Below state standard
  • Too Small: Too few students in school or group to evaluate
