WCS Recommended for Reaccreditation back button

Wilson County Schools has been recommended for reaccreditation by AdvancED after a seven-month process of providing documentation, showcasing best practices during school visits and sharing detailed information during onsite interviews.    

Reaccreditation occurs every five years to ensure that schools and districts are setting goals and improving. During the process, Wilson County Schools provided AdvancED with more than 700 artifacts which were loaded into a software program for review. The artifacts showed what the district was doing in the areas of maintaining stable governance and leadership; providing a coherent course of study; assessing the progress of all students; recruiting and retaining quality instructors; and providing access to necessary resources. 

Last week, a team from AdvancED visited several schools for site visits and interviews with administrators, staff, Board of Education members, parents and community members. The team also spoke with teachers and students. A public meeting was scheduled for Feb. 24 where AdvancED would have made the official announcement that the district was being recommended for reaccreditation, but the meeting was canceled because of inclement weather. 

The team indicated that Wilson County Schools would be recommended for reaccreditation though the district is still awaiting the formal report. The report will include areas of improvement for the district to focus on in the future. 

In a recent meeting with district administrators, Superintendent Sean Bulson thanked everyone for the role they played in ensuring the district would be reaccredited. He also shared that the team from AdvancED was complimentary of the district’s hospitality and professionalism. 

“A lot of work went into making this happen, and I am grateful to our staff,” said Bulson. “As a district we did a good job showcasing the hard work in our schools since the last reaccreditation five years ago.”
