TMSA Recommended for Accreditation
On Monday, October 27 through Wednesday, October 29, TMSA hosted an External Review Team from AdvancED. The six-person review team made up of educational leaders utilized an international protocol designed to assist schools that are committed to systemic and sustainable improvement. The team examined the following areas: student performance results; instructional quality; learner and family engagement; support services for student learning; curriculum quality and efficacy; institutional purpose and direction, governance, and leadership effectiveness; stakeholder engagement; and, the allocation and use of resources. During the process, the review team conducted extensive interviews with the school leadership team, teachers, students, parents, board members, and community members. The team also completed multiple classroom observations at every grade and every subject area.

At the conclusion of their visit, the review team provided a preliminary exit report that states, “The External Review Team recommends to the AdvancED Accreditation Commission that The Main Street Academy earn the distinction of accreditation for a five-year term.” In the next thirty days, the review team will submit a final report to the AdvancED Commission that will culminate in official accreditation status for TMSA. This review process and the recommendation of accreditation is evidence that TMSA is committed to continuous improvement and student achievement at every level. If you would like additional information regarding the AdvancED accreditation process please visit their website at http://www.advanc-ed.org/services/accreditation.
