In February 2018, the TCSS was visited by an external AdvancED team consisting of professional educators trained in conducting organizational reviews of educational institutions on an international level. The team’s visit to TCSS was a culminating review of the district’s improvement process and compliance with legal and ethical policies and standards.
During their visit, the AdvancED team interviewed 421 individuals including board members, administrators, teachers, other school personnel, students, parents, and business representatives. District and school administrators spent nearly a year preparing for the AdvancED visit. This work included engaging stakeholders in reflecting on performance and processes as well as providing compliance documents through a digital portal according to an established timeline.
AdvancED recently provided their findings in a preliminary Engagement Review Report. An AdvancED committee will finalize the report later this month; however, we do not anticipate significant changes. Commendations and recommendations for improvement can be found in the below documents.
