Thayne Elementary School is on a continuous improvement and
accreditation cycle with the Wyoming Department of Education through
Advanc-Ed. The links to the right are the artifacts that TES collects
and updates based on Advanc-Ed’s seven standards of accreditation.
The following is a brief overview of Advanc-Ed and their accreditation process.
Through unification, the North Central Association Commission on
Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI) and the Southern
Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School
Improvement (SACS CASI), now share a set of global standards for
accreditation. These standards are the foundation for both the school
and district accreditation processes.
The seven standards and accompanying indicators were built on
NCA CASI and SACS CASI standards and are tied directly to research on factors that impact student learning.
The seven standards address the following areas:
- Vision and Purpose
- Governance and Leadership
- Teaching and Learning
- Documenting and Using Results
- Resources and Support Systems
- Stakeholder Communications and Relationships
- Commitment to Continuous Improvement
