DEXTER - Stephen Bell, principal of Dexter Regional High School, Kelly Tobin, teacher of the Special Ed. day treatment program, and Susan Abel, Librarian of DRHS, attended an accreditation seminar on December 11th at Ellsworth High School.
Sponsored by the Commission on Public Secondary Schools of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, the program was offered for principals and self-study steering committee members of schools scheduled to be evaluated Spring 2010. The seminar provided information to help schools finalize their plans for the evaluation visit and to learn more about the evaluation report and its review by the Commission on Public Secondary Schools. Participants shared their reactions to the self-study process with members of the Commission staff.
The New England Association of Schools and Colleges, founded in 1885, is the oldest accrediting agency in the country and is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a reliable agency to award accreditation in the New England area. The Association is a voluntary accrediting agency of more than 2000 public and independent schools, colleges and universities, and vocational, technical and career institutions. Of these, approximately 661 public K-12, middle/high, and high schools have been accredited or are candidates for accreditation through the Association's Commission on Public Secondary Schools.
