All schools in the Ware County School System have received Accredited with Quality status, the highest rating a school or system can receive. School administrators were on hand at the September board meeting to receive their accreditation certificate.
The Georgia Accrediting Commission recognizes four levels of accreditation: Preparation Status, Provisional Status, Accredited Status, and Accredited with Quality Status. Preparation Status is given to schools which have begun the process of applying the GAC standards and procedures. Provisional Status is given to schools which have begun applying GAC standards and procedures and have met standards in the areas of finances and administrator qualifications. Accreditation Status is given to schools which have met financial and administrator qualifications and have met at least 85% of the standards in each of the sections set by the GAC Board of Directors. A school is Accredited with Quality when it meets all of the standards which apply to Accreditation Status.
We are proud of the efforts school staff members and district staff have made to reach the highest level of accreditation. Congratulations!
