Greenville County Schools has been awarded National Accreditation from the AdvancED Accreditation Commission, recognizing the school system as a high quality school district and granting full accreditation to the school district and all of its schools.
“Accreditation as conferred by the AdvancED Accreditation Commission provides national and international recognition of the high quality of our schools, school board, and school district,” said Superintendent Dr. Phinnize J. Fisher. “To receive district-wide accreditation means that all facets of a school district are working in concert to support student learning and to meet the needs of students. Our efforts to attain district-wide accreditation also demonstrate to our community our ongoing commitment to excellence, our openness to external review and feedback, and our desire to continuously improve to support the achievements of our 69,000-plus students.”
AdvancED has developed a comprehensive process through which quality school districts can receive national accreditation. The accreditation process recognizes that increasing student achievement involves more than improving instruction. It is the result of how well all parts of the education system - district, school, classroom - work together to meet the needs of students. Accreditation is for a five-year term with regular reporting of progress.
As part of the initial phase of implementation, the District is sharing the Quality Assurance Review Team's findings with employees and the community. Click HERE for a summary of the findings.
