QAR Report

Recently the West Central School Corporation was visited by a Quality Assurance Review team. The North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and Schools (SACS CASI) accredit public and private schools and districts in 30 states, the Navajo Nation, LatinAmerica, and the Department of Defense Schools worldwide.

In 2006, NCA CASI, SACS CASI, and the research and development arm of the accrediting associations, the National Study of School Evaluation, unified to form AdvancED. Dedicated to advancing excellence in education, AdvancED provides accreditation, research, and professional services to 23,000 schools in 65 countries, serving 15 million students. Accompanying these standards is a unified accreditation process designed to help schools, school districts, and educational service agencies continuously improve.

The purpose of the Quality Assurance Review is to:
  • Evaluate the school district's adherence to the AdvancED quality standards and policies.
  • Assess the efficacy of the district's improvement process and methods for quality assurance.
  • Identify commendations and required actions to improve the district and its schools.
  • Make an accreditation recommendation for review by the national AdvancED Accreditation Commission.
A key aim of the Quality Assurance Review is to verify that the school district is operating with institutional integrity - that it is fulfilling its vision and mission for its students.
