Accreditation

One of Only Two Accredited K-12 Districts in Utah

What is Accreditation?

Accreditation icon

The award of District Accreditation signifies that the schools in the district have met the Standards for Accreditation at an acceptable level and are committed to maintaining those Standards.
Accredited districts have completed a multi-school, community-wide self-assessment process, and have hosted a visiting team of peers who review the individual schools and the district office in terms of common goals and the Standards for Accreditation.
No charter school in Utah is fully accredited in all grades K-12.
