Covington Independent Public Schools Awarded AdvancED School System Accreditation

Covington Superintendent Alvin Garrison

 

 

Superintendent Alvin Garrison announced today that Covington Independent Public Schools was granted AdvancED School System Accreditation from the AdvancED Accreditation Commission, the national commission that confers the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI) accreditation seal.

This means that the system and all of its schools are accredited, and that Covington Independent Public Schools is recognized across the nation as a quality school system.

“I am extremely elated about our accreditation,’’ Mr. Garrison said.  “It validates our board’s leadership and the work of our faculty and staff who show up daily to do what’s best for students.  This is another piece of evidence that confirms Covington is on the right track to district improvement.”

 

The accreditation process involves three ongoing components:  1) meeting high quality standards; 2) implementing a continuous process of improvement; and 3) engaging in quality assurance through internal and external review.  The system’s accreditation is for a five-year term with regular monitoring of progress and reporting occurring during the term.

 

“School System Accreditation as conferred by the AdvancED Accreditation Commission provides Covington Schools a nationally-recognized mark of quality for our system and all the schools within our system,” Mr. Garrison said.  “It demonstrates to our community our commitment to excellence, our openness to external review and feedback, and our desire to be the best we can be on behalf of the students we serve.”

 

Dr. Mark Elgart, President/CEO of AdvancED, stated, “AdvancED School System Accreditation is a rigorous process that focuses the entire school system on the primary goal of creating lifelong learners.  Covington is to be commended for engaging in this process and demonstrating a commitment to continuous improvement.”
