Steamboat Springs School District Receives Highest Accreditation

For the third year in a row, the Steamboat Springs School District has received the ranking of “Accredited with Distinction”  from the Colorado Department of Education.

According to an article published this morning in the Steamboat TodaySteamboat Gets Top Marks, the Steamboat Springs School District will probably be one of only a small group of school districts to earn the title for 2011-2012 school year performance.  Only 18 of the 178 school districts in Colorado (Steamboat Springs was one of them) earned the “Accredited with Distinction” rating form the 2010-2011 school year.

Read my blog, Steamboat Springs’ Schools Among Best in Colorado for more about last year’s ratings.

The Colorado Department of Education’s ratings are based not only on student academic achievement, but on how well the school district prepares students for careers and post-secondary education.

It  is quite an honor for any school district to receive this rating, so the fact that the Steamboat Springs School District has received it for the third year in a row should make our students, parents, educators and community very proud.  I’m know I am!
