AdvancED External Review Report
Speaker(s):  AdvancED External Review Team/ Dr. Brian Norton
Discussion:  Henry County School System was awarded district accreditation from AdvanceED, making this the 101st year of continuous accreditation. AdvancED Chair Dr. Sharon Zimmer explained the external review team's results to both board members and a large crowd of educators. She stated that her team interviewed 123 stakeholders, including administrators, teachers, students, board members, and parents. They looked at hundreds of documents to determine an appropriate rating for the Henry County School System. Dr. Zimmers explained that the rating was determined by the same scale that is used for 32,000 organizations in the United States and 70 other countries. The district and schools scheduled a three day interview process with the external review team, discussing demographics, leadership resources, support systems, instructions, and student services. Dr. Zimmers advised that her team had never seen this high of a score as a district and that everyone needs to know what a great job is being done in Henry County Schools! The accreditation report will help the system build on its continuous improvement model. Dr. Norton thanked the external review team for their hard work and dedication over the last few days. Meeting adjourned-4:00pm
