Corbett students deserve the return of accreditation to our school district. Besides providing parents regular information about whether or not the school is meeting standards it also provides confidence ( and justification ) when a school and school’s programs are regularly evaluated. It ensures there is always a plan for improvement. No school is perfect and we can all work towards making things better for everyone.
If our application for provisional accreditation is turned in by August 2012, and we are "significantly compliant with the standards", our Juniors this year could graduate next year from Corbett as an accredited high school ( Class of 2013. ) The application cost is $100. It is a two page basic application.
There are three phases to Northwest Accreditation
Application: Mentioned above
Provisional Accreditation: It is during this time (up to three years) that a school completes its first self-study, resulting in a formal school improvement plan. The school has all rights and privileges of a fully accredited school with the exception of voting on resolutions or by-law changes.
Accreditation: The school meets all standards and moves to a six year cycle between on-site visits. The school also receives all privileges including voting on resolutions, by-law changes and any changes or modifications in Northwest Accreditation Commission standards.
