NEWS RELEASE: Corning Children’s Center Earns Middle States Re-accreditation
Corning, NY (June 23, 2017) – Corning Children’s Center announced today that it has earned re-accreditation by the Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools, a worldwide leader in accreditation and continuous school improvement. Corning Children’s Center was first accredited in 2005 and is proud to have been one of the first early age schools to be accredited by the Middle States Association.
“We are pleased to have earned re-accreditation by the Middle States Association and to share our success with the community, especially the teachers, parents and students who worked so hard to make this possible,” said Peigi Cook, Corning Children’s Center executive director. “Re-accreditation confirms and validates the work we do each and every day to ensure a top quality education for our young learners.”
Accreditation is a self-evaluation process that schools voluntarily undergo to demonstrate they are meeting a defined and validated set of performance standards. The accreditation process helps schools – and ultimately students –continuously grow and improve.
The process begins with a self-study that is conducted by the school and requires input from school leaders, teachers, parents and students. Following the self-study, a team of volunteer educators from Association member schools conducts an on-site peer review visit to observe school operations and interview various stakeholders.
The visiting team makes its recommendation to the Middle States Association Commissions, which votes on the accreditation.
“The accreditation process examines schools in a holistic way, supplementing student testing data and providing a more complete measure of a school’s performance,” said Henry G. Cram, Ed.D., president of the Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools. “School leaders, teachers and parents are to be commended for working together to create a concrete plan focused on providing high quality education for all students.”
