After a two-year internal evaluation and self-assessment that involved parents, students, faculty & staff, benefactors and community partners, as well as an external review performed by a team of education experts, Cotter Schools has been recommended for continued accreditation by AdvancED.
The external review team reported their findings and recommendation to Cotter's leaders, faculty, staff and various constituents on Friday and will forward on their recommendation to the National AdvancED Commission. The Commission is expected to confirm the recommendation in June.
The review team commended Cotter in several areas of review including their findings of, 'well managed classrooms and a supportive learning environment', a 'strong and clear sense of community and family', and a positive and clearly defined working relationship between the governing board and administration.
