Somerset School Will Seek Reacreditation From Middle States Association

Aug 29, 2012

Superintendent Majorie Miles told the Somerset County Commissioners that the district will focus on regaining accreditation from the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.

In addition, the Commissioners said they also hoped that Greenwood Elementary and Somerset Intermediate schools would be named Maryland Blue ribbon Schools because of their high test scores.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that the school system accreditation got the attention of Somerset County leaders in 2010 after Holly Grove Christian School in Westover boasted of winning the Middle States accreditation.

Former Superintendent Karen-Lee Brofee decided not to renew the accreditation because the school system was already audited by the state and other groups as well as putting a burden on administrators.

The Commissioners told Superintendent Miles this week they felt it was important to regain that accreditation.
