District Accreditation

District Accreditation

Ouachita Parish School System is accredited district-wide by AdvancED. The organization AdvancED is the largest community of education professionals in the world. They are a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of Pre-K-12 schools and school systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential. Undergoing AdvancED review is voluntary. At Ouachita Parish School System, we believe in self-study for improvement in educating our students who are our future. For that reason, the district participated in review during the fall and winter months of 2015-16. Results of the review are found in the report below, along with self-study documents submitted to the review team. Additionally, you can find the district school improvement plan addressing recommendations from the team.
