As a global organization, we serve all types of institutions—every type of institution you can imagine from all over the world. Each institution has its own set of beliefs, their own vision, and directed purpose. As do we. As improvement experts, in our accreditation work, we craft standards designed to improve education quality.
The standards are written so that they adapt to the unique context of every institution and every institution’s vision, purpose, and core values. They are written to help institutions pursue their vision for a better future. Our role is to guide and support institutions on their improvement journeys. We are an extra set of independent, objective eyes on how well states, districts, schools, and learners are progressing toward their desired future. As we prepare to implement a new set of Cognia standards and protocols for accreditation this upcoming school year, we are focused on helping institutions and their educators improve the learner success.
The last few years have been isolating and have challenged us to connect in new ways within our personal and professional networks. We have all had to find ways to maintain and build the connections that sustain us and our school communities. As we look to summer it is time for us to reflect, relax, and prepare to re-engage our communities to continue the journey of improvement.
