Music School Path to Accreditation: To do list

  1. Reach out to local accreditation board (find out who handles accreditation in your state)
  2. Pick a category (we chose “Supplemental Education”)
  3.  Initial assessment report
  4.  Get accredited
  5.  Work with local school and/or district to utilize their school code for college credits
  6.  Attract a bunch of new students to your school and grow

The three things we picked to improve our School for our “Action Plan” were:

  1.  Data Collection  and Reporting Methods (Learning Management System…www.TeacherZone.com)
  2.  Robust Human Resources Department
  3.  Formalize Our Schools Approach to Emergency Situations
