Our hard work has paid off! The agency received unofficial word that AEA 267 was fully accredited in all standard areas as a result of our accreditation site visit by the Iowa Department of Education (DE) this past spring. Dr. Roark Horn will go before the State Board of Directors later this month when they will officially accept the recommendation from DE staff. The report (downloadable here) contains a variety of feedback organized around strength areas and recommendations for further study/improvement. The agency Continuous Improvement Team will review the report in detail and craft strategies for addressing any areas for growth.
“I couldn’t be prouder of our staff for this accomplishment,” said Horn. “This report validates that we are indeed doing the highest quality work possible to support students, families and educators in our area.”
