School Accreditation. Booklets I through IX.
Schmidt, Monica; And Others
To help school staffs, students, parents, and community members understand and apply accreditation processes, ten booklets outline the new accreditation procedures adopted by the Washington State Board of Education for individual elementary and secondary schools. The booklets contain forms, checklists, and explanatory materials for two general types of accreditation, the self-study method and the shorter standards-only method. An introductory booklet describes accreditation models and the changes in state accreditation procedures. The following eight booklets discuss (1) factors promoting successful self-study methods, (2) the input/standards assessment model of self-study, (3) the process/outcomes analysis model of self-study, (4) school climate assessment, (5) the self-designed model of self-study, (6) validation of accreditation procedures, (7) standards-only accreditation of elementary schools, and (8) standards-only accreditation of secondary schools. Selected references and further supplementary materials are provided in the final booklet. (RW)
