AdvancED, a group that accredits most of the schools in Georgia, has formed a partnership with the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) to reduce duplication of school improvement processes for Georgia schools, focus continuous improvement efforts statewide and facilitate equity for all Georgia learners. Through the partnership, AdvancED and GaDOE will provide Georgia learners, educators, and institutions with improvement tools, resource guidance, and support services that are aligned with a common continuous improvement framework.
“This partnership with AdvancED will help us serve districts more effectively and more efficiently, reducing duplication between schools’ accreditation processes and GaDOE’s school improvement work,” said Richard Woods, State School Superintendent. “This is a request we’ve heard from districts and we’re so grateful for the continued partnership of AdvancED. Together we will create, implement, and sustain a common framework for continuous improvement that is supported and enabled by common terminology, shared communications, training, and aligned tools, resources, and support systems.”
