Lisa Oliveira, Principal of King Philip Regional High School, announced that sixteen educators will make an on-site evaluation of King Philip Regional High School on September 22, 2013 through September 25, 2013. The evaluation visit will be conducted under the direction of the Commission on Public Secondary Schools of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. The visiting committee will be chaired by Maria Silvestri, Assistant Principal at West Springfield High School, who has extensive experience in the Association’s evaluation process.
Oliveira said, “The purpose of this evaluation is to review and determine, from an outside point of view, the extent to which King Philip is meeting the Standards for Accreditation. The evaluating team from NEASC will meet with all school constituents to review the school’s self-study, visit a number of classes, and examine examples of student work submitted by the school. From January 2012 through December 2012, the faculty completed a comprehensive self-study, which included identifying both the school’s strengths and the areas where changes would be beneficial.”
Oliveira would like to invite parents and community members to the events held on Sunday, September 22nd. Parents and community members will have the opportunity to share their thoughts with the visiting committee. Below is the schedule for Sunday, September 22, 2013.
