AdvancEd (Accreditation) Update!

 

As a part of our five year accreditation cycle Juneau-Douglas High School submitted a progress report on May 1st, 2017.  Our progress report provided narrative and evidence addressing the three improvement priorities we were given in the Spring of 2015 by the External Review team.  It was accepted by the AdvancEd review board and we were recently notified of our results.  Here is the summary:

* Leadership Capacity is a domain in which we were not given any improvement priorities after our review, so there was no re-scoring that occurred.

 

What does this mean?  Notably, JDHS grew in all re-scored areas due to our progress report evidence related to the improvement priorities.  Each of the AdvancEd indicators within Teaching and Learning Impact category moved from a 2.0 range to a 3.0, which placed all of them above the AdvancEd average scores.  Our growth specifically recognizes improvements in equitable and challenging curriculum, curriculum instruction and assessment monitoring, and student engagement through instructional strategies that ensure achievement of learning expectations.  It also noted an increase in training provided to staff on the evaluation, interpretation, and use of data.  The updated AdvancEd scores validated our efforts and focus over the last few years.  Lots of reasons to celebrate!

 

Arguably, the largest celebration is in our improvement regarding our technology infrastructure supporting the schools’ teaching, learning and operational needs as measured through student use of technology for learning.  Our concerted efforts, and the support from our IT department, earned the well-deserved accolades.  The specific indicator score went from 1.2 in 2015 to 3.0 in 2017 – well above the 2.56 national average.  Go Bears!
