ouncil on Accreditation and School Improvement


SACS CASI District Accreditation

improving student performance

results and organizational effectiveness over time.Recognizes that increasing student achievement is a result of how well all the parts

of the education system-the district, school, and classroom-work together to meet the needs of students.


A Basic Premise of SACS CASI

"The capacity of any organization to improve is directly related to its ability to recognize, acknowledge, and act on its strengths and limitations.”The District Accreditation process provides a vehicle forassisting school systems to effectively identify their strengths and areas needing improvement;

providing external experienced professionals who, through a structured onsite visit

assess the capacity of the system to meet the criteria for accreditation

commend worthy accomplishments, and recommend strategies that hold the promise of important systemic improvements.

Dr. Mark Elgart, President/CEO
