District AdvancEd Accreditation
With a balanced, systemic approach combining Standards, stakeholder feedback and student performance to measure quality programs, relationships and results, the AdvancED systems-oriented Accreditation Process helps institutions make the most of their talents and resources. The process aligns accreditation with accountability, emphasizing learner outcomes when evaluating institutional quality. However, it is not the outcome but the course taken over time that yields the greatest return on investment.
AdvancED is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of Pre-K-12 schools and school systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential. Their goal isn’t to certify that schools are good enough. Rather, their commitment is to help schools improve.
Farmington Public Schools first earned its accreditation in 2011 and went through the reaccreditation process again in 2016.
The District and all of our schools have their AdvancED Accreditation.
