NEASC 2022

Next Steps in LHS Accreditation

Next Steps in LHS Accreditation - Longmeadow High School will virtually welcome and host the Collaborative Conference team from the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) on Monday and Tuesday, November 9-10, 2020. In preparation for its 10-year re-accreditation visit in 2022, NEASC officials will meet with stakeholders, conduct classroom visits, and tour the physical plant. They will gather information about current conditions in the school, review the comprehensive self-reflection that was researched, written, and approved by the faculty, and ensure that identified areas of improvement align with future goals and NEASC standards to positively impact student learning.

Attention Parents and Guardians

Please check your email for the link to complete the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) survey. The survey should take approximately ten minutes to complete. This survey will help us learn more about what is working well for our families and identify areas for growth and improvement.

Vision of the Graduate Survey

Longmeadow High School has begun to prepare for the 10-year accreditation process of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), which will begin now and will culminate in 2022. One of the first steps is to consult with stakeholders in the community to develop a portrait of an LHS graduate through measurable skills and competencies, or what NEASC calls the school’s “Vision of the Graduate.”

According to NEASC, the Vision of the Graduate “emphasizes a holistic view of expectations for students, including the transferable skills, content, understandings, and disposition that students should have by the time they graduate and a method of assessing a student's progress toward that vision.”

The following five to ten minute survey will provide the opportunity to rate the importance of various skills and competencies that are acquired by students in their K-12 education and measured during their high school years. Survey results will be used to create Longmeadow High School’s Vision of the Graduate. The survey runs through Monday, December 17, 2018. Thank you in advance for your feedback. It is greatly appreciated. VOG Survey
