COLUMN: Celebrate new year at SCCS

Posted: Saturday, January 7, 2017 12:00 am

Happy New Year! It really is astounding to think that we are here in 2017. New year. New start. This is the time of the year we resolve to make changes to improve in many aspects of our lives. We decide to lose a few pounds, start an exciting exercise plan, be a bit kinder. We all seem a bit more hopeful at this time of year. We vow to move forward and not look to the past. Past is the past, we say. But is it really?

Social Circle City Schools has been busy this year preparing for our AdvancED accreditation process, which occurs every five years. The preparation involves evaluating the quality of a school system using preset standards that guide a diagnostic review of the work. This process holds the school system accountable for how resources and talents are used and emphasizes student outcomes. Basically, are we doing all we can and should be doing so that our students are successful?
