Process applauded [UPDATED]Published 9:48am Friday, April 5, 2013 Updated 11:51am Friday, April 5, 2013
We applaud Morning Son’s efforts at becoming accredited with the Minnesota Nonpublic School Accrediting Association. It will simply give the school more credibility than it has already.
For 29 years, the school, affiliated with First Church of Nazarene, has provided a quality education for families seeking a Christ-centered curriculum.
While Morning Son has been strong in many areas, it never hurts to take a second look at practices and policies with an eye to making changes.
The 18- to 24-month accreditation process will focus on eight standards, including the school’s mission and philosophy, curriculum and instruction, learner performance, school climate and facilities, community relations, personnel leadership and governance and the school strategic plan. With the process driven by hours of self-study, the school will develop a strategic plan for development and improvement as its final phase before accreditation.
Parents who enroll their students at Morning Son Christian School already know their children are getting a quality education with extensive one-on-one time with their teacher. The accreditation will give parents the added assurance that the school has closely examined all areas of its educational programs and policies in the best interests of its students.
