  • AdvancED Accredits Westminster Public Schools

    After a nearly yearlong comprehensive assessment of Westminster Public Schools (WPS) including  more than 500 interviews and visits to 215 classrooms AdvancEd, a regional accreditation agency, announced Wednesday night that it is awarding Performance Accreditation to the district.

    AdvancED’s  accreditation, which focuses on instruction and continuous improvement,  will complement the Colorado Department of Education’s (CDE)  Accountability and Accreditation process which was paused last year by the state legislature.

    “We have long believed that competency based education is the right way for students to learn, so we jumped at the chance to evaluate a district where personalized learning is used and educators are thinking outside the box,” said David Hurst, Deputy Chief Operations Officer.   “Westminster Public Schools is definitely on the right track and should not return to business as usual.”
