  • Guilford High School Proposed Improvement

    1. 1. Guilford High School <br />Proposed Improvement<br />May 2011<br />”… the issues regarding the physical plant’s short-comings must be addressed.”<br />Excerpt from the NEASC Accreditation Report<br />
    2. 2. Presentation Outline<br />
    3. 3. High School Accreditation Status<br />Excerpt from the NEASC Accreditation Report:<br />“Administrators, teachers, support personnel, and the maintenance staff have collaborated to develop strategies to make the best of the facility’s short-comings and find creative strategies to meet demands; however, they have exhausted all the alternatives possible.”<br />NEASC, the New England Association of Schools and Colleges is a regional accrediting agency responsible for the evaluation and accreditation of public secondary school member institutions. Continued accreditation requires that the school be reevaluated at least once every ten years and that it show continued progress addressing identified needs. <br />
