Accreditation


Washington State school accreditation was developed to ensure that our state’s high schools were adequately preparing students for college. The intent was to document programs of high quality for colleges and the patrons of Washington’s educational system. Accreditation is now open to all grade levels and is a voluntary, self-study process that is a research-based approach to school improvement.

The accreditation process provides for collaboration and deep reflection by the school community, for external review and validation of the school improvement plan, and the process that led to its development. It also provides a statement of accountability to the public.

ESD 123 is one of nine ESDs in Washington's Association of Educational Service Districts (AESD). The AESD Accreditation website (www.waesd.org/accreditation) includes numerous resources and details for schools and districts interested in accreditation.
