Today we welcomed two representatives from AdvancED, Kelly Knipe and Anna Pehar onto our campus today. They were impressed with the classes they observed, the teachers they met and the powerful conversations they had with our students,
The purpose of their visit was to consider our readiness to begin the process towards international accreditation. This a journey to build security and confidence in our community in the successful implementation of high quality teaching and learning at ACD.
Following a series of conversation focal points, it was announced that we will move from being an applicant school to being a 'Candidate for Accreditation' and preparing for the Engagement Review Team Visit. The formal announcement will come in about two weeks.
This change in status will provide guidance and support for the direction in which we will head in terms of alignment with international standards, quality teaching and learning, strategic planning for school development, and assurances for the international education community that we are a high quality school.
This is excellent news for our community and most importantly for our colleagues and our students.
Thank you to all for the role that each of you play in creating a variety of learning opportunities and experiences for our students. Thank you also, for your hard work, dedication and efforts in preparing for this readiness visit today.
