Middle States at FRHSD

Introduction

During the course of the 2014-2015 school year the Freehold Regional High School District will engage in a comprehensive self-study and strategic planning process. To guide our efforts our district will be adhering to the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools Excellence by Design accreditation protocol for school systems. The Middle States Association is a non-profit, peer-administered organization that provides leadership in educational growth and improvement for its member schools. In the fall of the 2015-2016 school year our district will be visited by a validation team sent by Middle States. Our ultimate goal is for our school district to be recommended by this team for re-accreditation by the Middle States Association. 

Accreditation responds to the public’s demands for improved quality and greater accountability for schools serving society’s needs. Accreditation agencies such as Middle States enjoy a unique “public trust” role in the United States. In other words, accredited schools can be trusted by the public to be what they claim to be and do what they claim to do. Whatever an accredited school says about itself has both the sanction and the confidence of the profession. 

Our school district will engage stakeholders from our communities throughout our self-study and strategic planning process. The resources below provide information on all aspects of the process. To learn more about the Middle States process in our school district click on the links below.
