Our school will be going through an accreditation visit this year. Now, I know that a lot of people do not like the process, but I love it. Accreditation is the bare minimum of standards that we meet. Notice I said “minimum.” How often do we look at accreditation as the upper (rather than lower) limit? Accreditation should be our floor, not our ceiling. Why not take the opportunity to (1) promote actual, ongoing improvement and (2) seek ways to go far beyond the minimum?
