School accreditation team will visit LCC

LAUREL — The date is set for AdvancED, an external accreditation team, to visit the Laurel-Concord-Coleridge School as part of the accreditation process.
AdvancED is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of Pre-K-12 school systems to ensure students realize their full potential.
An external visit is scheduled to take place April 2-4.
Schools are required to have an external visit every five years in order to be accredited according to LCC Principal Jay Vance.
“They will be checking on the progress the school continues to make,” Vance said. “Since our school was going through a consolidation, the State gave the school an extension on the time for the external visit to be made.”
The last time for an external visit made to the Laurel-Concord School was in 2009.
The visit is being made by a national company but the accreditation will come through the State of Nebraska, Vance said.
The team will arrive on Sunday, April 2 and spend two days interviewing teachers, staff, students, administrators, school board members, and parents gathering evidence to determine district accreditation.
Team members will visit each school location. In addition to the interviews, they will also conduct classroom observations.
An exit report will be provided by the team and a written report, that would identify any actions that may need to be taken, will be submitted in the near future.
