McDuffie Co. Schools receive re-accreditation
By Caitlin Boland

The McDuffie County BOE and administrators hear the results.
The McDuffie County School System has been recommended for continued accreditation through AdvancED.
An External Review Team from AdvancED visited McDuffie County from March 5 through March 8 to conduct a five-year review.
According to the review team, AdvancED is the global leader in providing continuous improvement and accreditation services to institutions, serving 20 million students worldwide.
The team reviewed the district and school self-assessments, stakeholder feedback and student achievement before interviewing 199 stakeholders and observed classrooms in four different schools in the system.
According to Lynn Cato, director of curriculum and instruction for McDuffie County Schools, this process yields an Index of Education Quality (IEQ) score, which measures performance in three domains: Teaching and Learning Impact, Leadership Capacity and Resource Utilization.
The overall IEQ score for McDuffie County Schools was 306.34. The average score for the more than 32,000 schools in the AdvancED network is approximately 278, 14 points lower than McDuffie County’s score. Cato said McDuffie County Schools rated higher than the AdvancED network average in all domains.
