All Williamsburg-James City County Schools have earned accreditation as a result of student performance on Standards of Learning tests. As a new school, James Blair Middle School was accredited with conditions, which is the standard across the state.
The Virginia Department of Education reported school ratings on September 27, noting that this is the first year schools could be accredited under new state accreditation standards to promote continuous achievement in all schools, close achievement gaps and expand accountability beyond overall performance on Standards of Learning tests.
“For the 11th consecutive year, WJCC Schools have maintained full accreditation across the division,” Superintendent Olwen Herron, Ed.D. stated. “We are extremely proud of this achievement and it positions us to Elevate student success Beyond Excellence through the work associated with the five-year strategic plan the division adopted this fall.”
WJCC Schools’ strategic plan, Elevate: Beyond Excellence, is comprised of six goal areas including academic success and educational equity. More information about Elevate is available at wjccschools.org/strategicplan.
