An Accredited School System
Accreditation is a voluntary method of quality assurance developed more than 100 years ago by American universities and secondary schools and designed primarily to distinguish schools adhering to a set of educational standards. Today the accreditation process is used at all levels of education and is recognized for its ability to effectively drive student performance and continuous improvement in education. Reviews take place every five years.Baldwin County Public School System participated in an External Review by a team of highly qualified evaluators March 23-26, 2014. The External Review is the hallmark of AdvancED Performance Accreditation as it energizes and equips the leadership and stakeholders of an institution to achieve higher levels of performance and address those areas that may be hindering efforts to reach desired performance levels. External Review is a rigorous process that includes examination of evidence and relevant data, interviews with stakeholders, and observations of instruction, learning, and operations.Following the External Review, the team submitted their final report to AdvancEd Accreditation Commission, granting Baldwin County Public School System accreditation status. By achieving this designation, our school system was the first among Alabama School systems to achieve the system-wide distinction. In the past, each school was accredited separately.Click here for the complete AdvancED report of the External Review for Baldwin County Board of Education.
