Shepherd of the Lakes, Brighton receives NLSA Accreditation
Terry Schmidt's Snowtire 2015 presentation on the new Evidence Based Accreditation process.
The Michigan District encourages our Lutheran Pre-Schools, Elementary Schools and High Schools to actively follow an improvement plan. Accreditation is the method schools use to print out a plan for continuing success. The National Office for Lutheran Schools developed a tool for National Lutheran School Accreditation. This standards-based procedure involves a comprehensive self-study followed by an on-site visit with written documentation.
The phase one program is based on certain standards and every seven years (through 2008; five years for schools applying 2009 and beyond) after completion a school can either repeat the standards based procedure or develop an Ongoing Improvement Plan in which they identify 3-7 areas in which they are seeking improvement.
The Chairman for the Michigan District Accreditation Commission is Dale Vorwerk, retired principal. The National head of NLSA is Terry Schmidt. For more information visit www.lcms.org.
