Edgewood Students Meet Quebec

In June of this summer, 16 Edgewood students traveled to Quebec City, Canada for an immersion tour.  During the trip, they participated in fun activities, such as visiting an authentic sugar shack, playing interactive games related to 19th century military lifestyle, dancing on a river cruise down the St. Lawrence river, making copper art at the Copper Museum, visiting the Montmorency waterfall, and more.  Students had a great time and the BEST part for Madame Tiller was that throughout the trip the students spoke French with each other, the guide, and the locals.

AdvancED External Review Team Recommends 5-Year Accreditation for RBBCSC!

AdvancED External Review Team Recommends 5-Year Accreditation for RBBCSC!
During the week of April 25th, our school corporation was visited by an AdvancED External Review Team as part of our accreditation process. Accreditation is a rigorous evaluation process that involves internal and external review. The school has met a set of standards developed by AdvancED that offer education providers of all types a framework for school and corporation improvement. Our schools and corporation have agreed to regular self-reviews and reviews by outside evaluators to check our ongoing progress.

During the external review visit, the team met with members of our school board, heard presentations by our administrative team, spoke with parents and community stakeholders, observed classrooms across all buildings and grade levels, spoke with students and staff, and met with building leadership and school improvement teams. In addition to the onsite discussions with stakeholders and observation of our daily practices, the External Review Team also worked off-site each evening to review our school and corporation self-assessments and supporting evidence to affirm our positive practices and confirm our areas for improvement.

On Wednesday, April 27th, the External Review Team met with the RBBCSC School Board of Trustees in a work session to share their work and the results of the review. I am pleased to announce that the AdvancED External Review Team has recommended that the Richland-Bean Blossom Community School Corporation receives AdvancED Accreditation for a 5-year period. The corporation will soon receive a detailed report identifying our Opportunities for Improvement and Improvement Priorities to guide us in our continuous improvement process. The External Review Team was complimentary on the accuracy and honesty of the areas our school and corporation-level committees identified as strengths and weaknesses.

I want to take a moment to thank our Corporation Committees, School Committees, building administrators, and all other staff members and stakeholders who were part of this process. The administrative team will share next steps and actions as we continue to move forward in our continuous improvement process. Please feel free to contact my office with any questions about our process.

Yours in education,
Jason Bletzinger
Assistant Superintendent

Why is accreditation important?
To demonstrate education quality, accreditation is used by a wide range of education providers, from traditional schools to distance learning providers to tutoring centers, serving all ages of students from toddlers to adults. Accreditation provides school corporations with the tools and the know-how to ensure students are college- and career-ready.

What does it mean to be accredited?
Do students have everything they need to optimize their learning? Are students prepared to succeed in college or their career? An AdvancED accredited school corporation has access to valuable resources and tools that provide answers to these questions and more. A school is equipped to better identify and implement strategies for improvement giving you peace of mind that your child is attending a school that cares about quality.

What are the benefits for students attending an accredited school?
Next to a parent, a teacher is one of the most influential figures in a student's life. So as parents, you want to know that teachers are working all the time to improve the learning opportunities for your child. An accredited school corporation pays attention to providing its schools and teachers the resources and tools to succeed in the classroom. An accredited school corporation is committed to offering students a rigorous, diverse and sound curriculum instructed by qualified teachers. Students also are eligible for special programs, grants and scholarships.
