STEDY Receives Cognia Accreditation

This Spring, STEDY came to the end of a two year journey in the process of accreditation. The accreditation was sought by Cognia (formerly known as AdvanceEd). Cognia works with schools and systems of all types and sizes across the globe to clearly assess the quality of your institution and to help them meet the needs of every student. Cognia provided STEDY with an explicit set of research-based standards and evidence-based criteria for accreditation and certification.

Cognia examined our entire district - its policies, programs, practices, learning conditions, and cultural context to determine how well the parts work together to carry out our vision and meet the needs of every learner. Their team interviewed staff, teachers, students, parents, community members and the governing board.

Based on the set of standards and criteria set before us, it was determined that STEDY met and exceeded the standards, thus resulting in the valuable recognition of excellence and accreditation. STEDY is gaining recognition and this accreditation validates our passion of preparing our student's for tomorrow's workforce.
