The School District of South Milwaukee is currently working on district accreditation through the organization AdvancED. There are five standards that our district and schools will be assessed on, during our site visit, later this year:
Purpose and Direction
The school/district maintains and communicates a purpose and direction that commit to high expectations for learning, as well as shared values and beliefs about teaching and learning.
Governance and Leadership
The school /district operates under governance and leadership that promote and support student performance and school effectiveness.
Teaching and Assessing for Learning
The school’s/district’s curriculum, instructional design and assessment practices guide and ensure teacher effectiveness and student learning.
Resources and Support Systems
The school/district has resources and provides services that support its purpose and direction to ensure success for all students.
Using Results for Continuous Improvement
The school/district implements a comprehensive assessment system that generates a range of data about student learning and school effectiveness and uses the results to guide continuous improvement.
As we continue our work in these areas, one of the requirements of AdvancED is to have families complete surveys every year that provide feedback about each of these areas. We value your opinion and ask that you take the time to complete this survey.
You can complete the survey online by going to:
In addition, we will have paper copies available for parents when you visit our school. The survey needs to be completed by January 15, 2014.
Please be assured that your responses to this survey will be anonymous. Your honest opinion is appreciated.
Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.
