The Annual Accreditation Status and Progress Report (ASPR) for continued accreditation is to be submitted by the principal each school year following the visitation years. On the years that a school completes a self-study and hosts a site team, the ASPR is NOT required. The ASPR provides a periodic self-assessment and review of the current accreditation standards. Schools should review any accreditation updates or changes that may have been made to existing standards.
Principals must submit the ASPR including all supporting documentation to the Director of Educational Accountability no later than October 15th. The LCS Accreditation Commission, which receives a copy of the report, will review it to verify that the school continues to maintain accreditation standards. This commission makes recommendations to the Executive Board at its annual meeting. Upon LCS Executive Board approval, the annual certificate of accreditation will be sent to each accredited school.
