Principal John Luhrs on Public School Accreditation for the 21st Century
Near the end of 2012, the Kansas Education Commission proposed a number of recommendations related to education in Kansas. The State Board of Education was asked to review the current accreditation process known as the Quality Performance Accreditation or QPA model. The QPA model, developed in 1992 and modified in 2005 relied on 11 quality assurances in order for the school to be accredited. One of the most important elements of the accreditation process included the individual school’s performance on the state assessments.  The new model the State Board of Education is considering maintains an emphasis on school achievement, but is more interested in the instructional process that schools use to achieve their results.

If adopted, the new accreditation process will use the “five R’s” as a way to focus on the quality of a 21st Century education model. The “five R’s” will scrutinize the quality characteristics of Relationships, Relevance, Responsive Culture, Results and Rigor. According to information provided by the Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) the following definitions for each of the “five R’s” are further explained:

Relationships include “a state of interconnectedness among people, curricula, programs, projects, and communities-are critical in establishing connections that result in high performing learning environments.”

Relevance is “the power and ability of specific information to meet the needs of its user-strengthens learner motivation and allows learning to become more engaging, empowering, connected, applicable to the real-world, and socially significant.”

Responsive Culture relies on input from the community and “one that readily reacts to suggestions, influences, appeals, efforts, or opportunities-empowers all stakeholders to become respectful of, responsible for, and involved in learning, the learning process, and the learning community.”

Results require “witnessable evidence of growth and learning-allows curriculum and instruction to be delivered in a timely fashion based on the needs and desires of the individual learning.  Informative and summative assessment, coupled with research-based effective teaching practices, can provide the data and information necessary to fuel teaching and empower learning.”

Rigor is defined as “a relentless pursuit of that which challenges and provides opportunity to demonstrate growth and learning-is essential is addressing the needs of our rapidly expanding society and world.”

How is Cimarron High School working towards accreditation using the new model?  Our Individual Student Learning Plans, by design, address each of the “five R’s” and help our learning community focus on academic success for each of our students. Through multiple assessments, interest inventories, career exploration, stakeholder interviews and a focus on post-secondary education planning we are preparing our kids to be successful in high school and beyond.
