Schools reach another level of success

Last week, the Virginia Board of Education honored the Pulaski County Public School system for reaching another level of success.
The Pulaski County Public School division, along with school divisions in Bland, Dickenson, Tazewell and Washington counties and Suffolk City, were recognized by the VBOE for achieving division-level accreditation through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools’ Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI).
All schools within a division must be fully accredited under the commonwealth’s Standards of Learning (SOL) accountability program for the division to earn SACS CASI accreditation, and division-level accreditation is the highest level of accreditation that a school system can receive from the SACS CASI organization, according to the VBOE.
“Everyone in the school system has worked so hard to meet the requirements of SACS CASI and at ensuring that our students are successful on the SOLs,” said Dr. Don Stowers, superintendent for the Pulaski County Public School system. “It is gratifying to know that increased student achievement is the consequence of hard work and dedication by so many people.”
The voluntary SACS CASI accreditation process compares policies, practices, and conditions within a school division with SACS CASI standards for governance, leadership, instruction, accountability, student services, management, planning, communications, and continuous improvement.
The rigorous accreditation process enhances the three pillars of accreditation: high standards, quality assurance, and continuous improvement, and by earning SACS CASI accreditation, school divisions demonstrate their commitment to best practices, quality instruction, and increased student achievement, according to the VBOE.
In March of 2006, the VBOE joined in a partnership with the SACS CASI to encourage school divisions to seek SACS CASI accreditation as an incentive for accelerating efforts to improve instruction and raise student achievement.
Founded in 1895, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools is a voluntary, non-governmental agency composed of more than 13,000 accredited colleges and universities, elementary, middle, and secondary schools.
