6 educators will conduct an on-site Initial or Decennial Accreditation visit of Rockland Senior High School on September 27th through September 29th  Principal John Harrison announced today.  The Accreditation visit will be conducted under the direction of the Commission on Public Schools of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.  

The purpose of this Accreditation visit is to review and determine from an outside professional viewpoint the extent to which the school is aligned with the Standards for Accreditation. As part of the assessment, the visiting team will meet with all school constituents, review the school’s Self-Reflection, visit a number of classes, and examine examples of student work submitted by the school. During the comprehensive Self-Reflection, the faculty attempted to identify the school's strengths and determined those areas in which changes would be beneficial.

The purpose of visiting Rockland High School is to assist the faculty in its pursuit of quality education for its students. The members of the visiting team are contributing their services to the school.  This spirit of professional collaboration is one of the noted features of the New England Association.  The goal of an Accreditation visit is to stimulate a continuing drive for improvement in the school. The members of the visiting team are teachers and administrators from a variety of schools in the  New England area.

The New England Association of Schools and Colleges is a voluntary membership organization of more than 2,000 public schools, colleges and universities, independent schools, and vocational, technical, and career institutions. Of these, over 725 schools have been accredited through the Association's Commission on Public Schools. The Commission works with individual public schools to improve the quality of education through a continuous process of Accreditation and evaluation.
