RHS was just awarded continued accreditation by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges “NEASC,” a regional association of over 2,000 public and independent schools including our DRG-A cohort. The accreditation program for public schools involves a threefold process: the self-study conducted by the local professional staff, the on-site evaluation conducted by the committee's visiting team, and the follow-up program carried out by the school to implement the findings of its own self-study, the valid recommendations of the visiting team, and those identified by the committee in the follow-up process.
As part of the 10-year accreditation cycle, RHS successfully completed the NEASC Self-Study and Accreditation visit in fall 2019. In May, the district was notified that the Commission on Public Schools voted to award RHS continued accreditation in NEASC. The Visiting Team Report and recommendations are being considered by RHS and will be presented to the Board of Education.
