Title
BPS Awarded Continuing System Accreditation with AdvancED SACS CASI

Discussion
The Brevard County School District has been awarded continuing system accreditation by AdvancED, the parent organization of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI). The new accreditation term is through June 30, 2021. Brevard first achieved system accreditation in 2006. The district hosted an External Review visit January 24-27, 2016. During that time a group of educators from across the United States visited the District and met with stakeholders to determine the degree to which Brevard Public Schools meets the AdvancED accreditation standards. The External Review team recommended continued system accreditation and on March 31, 2016, the AdvancED Accreditation Commission approved the team's recommendation. Dr. Teresa Wright will present the Brevard County System Accreditation plaque to the Superintendent and School Board. Dr. Wright served as the district chairperson for the system accreditation renewal process.

Recommendation
Recognize Brevard Public Schools for being awarded continuing system accreditation by AdvancED SACS CASI.
