Yuma Union High School District offering a survey for parents and students
To continue on with its process of becoming AdvancED accredited, the Yuma Union High School District is looking for parents of its students to complete a survey about the district in the next two weeks.
Schools within the district are already accredited through AdvancED, formerly known as North Central Accreditation, but now YUHSD is seeking to go to the next level in receiving accreditation for the overall district.
Surveys can be completed until Oct. 5 and responses are anonymous. Parents can visit http://www.advanc-ed.org/survey/public/section/response/begin?surveyConfigId=28821 to complete the English version of the survey or request a Spanish paper survey at the front desk of their student's home campus.
“Accreditation is a voluntary method of quality assurance developed more than 100 years ago by American universities and secondary schools, and designed primarily to distinguish schools adhering to a set of educational standards,” stated YUHSD officials. “The accreditation process is also renowned in terms of its ability to effectively drive student performance and continuous improvement in education beyond state and national mandates.”
Through the process, YUHSD will evaluate their vision, strategies, priorities, leadership, programs and resources.
“We hope that parents will take the time to conduct our parent survey as we use information in developing strategies that facilitate our clear bottom line of every student ready for success in college and career,” YUHSD officials said.
