Raytown South passes accreditation review

Raytown South High recently underwent a Quality Assurance Review (QAR) by AdvancED (formerly the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement) and received full accreditation. 

 The last time Raytown South went through the extensive review process was in 1992. The accreditation process is focused on meeting standards and policies for quality schools, engaging in continuous improvement, and demonstrating quality assurance through both internal and external review.  Administrators and teachers from across the state visited Raytown South for two days to conduct the review.

 “We are proud and most pleased with the results.   We also realize we have much work to do as we move forward and continue with our goals of improving student achievement,” Raytown South High School Principal Dr. Kevin Overfelt said. “The visiting team affirmed the hard work and commitment by our building and school district.”  

 Prior to the review, the school’s QAR Team reviewed a self-assessment, school profile, and other documentation.  They interviewed 114 students, teachers, parents, administrators, staff, community leaders, and other stakeholders. 

 Seven standards the visiting team were reviewed were Vision and Purpose, Governance and Leadership, Teaching and Learning, Documenting and Using Results, Resource and Support Systems, Stakeholder Communications and Relationships, and Commitment to Continuous Improvement. 

The visitors presented findings to the faculty.  Raytown South received 3 commendations, and two assessments of Highly Functional. 

 Raytown High School had a QAR review during the 2010-2011 school year and was also fully accredited.
