Natl. High/Middle School Accreditation


Date: Sat Apr 26 2003 - 07:40:47 PDT

RE: Natl. High/Middle School Accreditation
Does anyone know what offerings a school must have to be accredited or where
I could find this information? Our schools have pink slipped several people
from band directors to librarians. Visual and performance arts have been cut
dramatically- NO middle school art at all and no vocal music at the high
school level- at all. We have always held pride in promoting the
"accreditation" of our schools and I am looking to see if this will lower
our rating or throw us out all together. I live in this town and am looking
for information that supports the idea that the degradation of primary &
secondary educational institutions largely impacts the value of the
community and property values in the area. Any help would be appreciated.
