City Charter High School-Comprehensive Plan 2015-2018

City Charter High School-Comprehensive Plan 2015-2018

CIty High just went through a Middle States Accredidation Process. We were recently notified that we recieved accredidation. We used that process to outline an extensive plan of action for continuing to improve over the next 7 years. That process included bringing the educational leadership team of the school together to outline four major goals (Supporting Students in Becoming Independent Learners, Increasing the Rigor of Instruction at CIty High, Continuing to Improve our Efforts to Help Students Effectively Transition from City High to Post High School and School Safety). All City High staff members were part of one of four committees that outlined action steps to progress on these goals. A planning team, which included board members and parents, approved the plans developed by the committess. Action has begun on all four areas as of September 2014.

CIty High administration is attempting to fold the Middle States planning into the comprehensive plan. As such, one of the internal coordinators is going through the comprehensive plan to determine how well the two will fit. After doing so, the administrative team will review the plan and share it with the educational leadership team and the City High Board of Directors.

Accreditation for Growth

Accreditation for Growth

A Self-Study for Accreditation by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools City Charter High School Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

The Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools is a non-governmental, nonprofit, peer-administered organization of diverse educational institutions committed to ensuring that students in accredited schools are receiving the highest quality education. Additionally, the Association seeks to ensure that accredited schools are engaged in continuous improvement efforts through effective leadership, a comprehensive program of self-study, evaluation by peer educators external to the school, meeting the requirements for accreditation, exemplary programs, and supportive services. For more than 125 years, the Association has provided leadership

in educational quality and school improvement for its member schools in Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and in schools in Europe, the Middle East, the subcontinent of Asia, and Africa.

The school selected the Accreditation for Growth (AFG) self-study and accreditation protocol. AFG outlines a unique accreditation process that uses strategic and site-based planning as vehicles for school improvement and growth in student performance. The protocol, developed by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, also provides linkages between school improvement efforts at the school and system levels.

The primary determinants of progress within the protocol are the actual results the school obtains in student performance rather than the quality of the school’s programs and resources. AFG requires the school to focus its mission and  improvement objectiveson its vision of a preferred future for its students; therefore, it is a future-oriented process. AFG also requires the school to conduct continuous reviews of its programs and services and allows diverse constituent groups to participate in charting the future of the school.
