DEXTER - Principal Stephen Bell of Dexter Regional High School today announced that as part of the self-study for the Commission on Public Secondary Schools of New England Association of Schools and Colleges accreditation the school is required to survey teachers, parents and students.
Parent surveys will be passed out during the school's Annual Open House on Wednesday, November 12th from 6 o'clock to 8 o'clock in the evening. Parents completing the survey will have the opportunity to take part in a raffle to win two season tickets to all Dexter Regional High School's sports events.
The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete.
NEASC membership requires that a school undergo a self-study and formal evaluation at least once every ten years. The survey questionnaires will provide essential information to complete the self-study and formal evaluation. According to Principal Bell, “the self-study will include the completion of a School and Community Profile which will provide information about SAD 46 as well as the school and the students it serves and a comprehensive assessment of teaching and learning and the support of teaching and learning. The focus of the evaluation visit will be to determine the extent to which our programs and services carry out the school's mission and expectations for student learning and meet the Commission's Standards for Accreditation.”
Dexter Regional High School was last accredited in 2000 and has maintained continued accreditation since it received NEASC membership in 1980. The next accreditation by a Commission visiting committee will be conducted in April, 2010.
The New England Association of Schools and Colleges is a voluntary membership organization of more that 2000 public school, colleges and universities, independent schools, and vocational, technical, and career institutions. Of these, approximately 650 schools have been accredited through the Association's Commission on Public Secondary Schools.
