It’s official: Our AdvancEd accreditation renewed
      Educational Service Unit #1 was officially awarded accreditation by AdvancEd on June 20. The accreditation is good for five years. Throughout the term of this accreditation, ESU #1 must continue to engage in the responsibilities of continuous improvement and the pursuit of educational excellence. 
      To earn accreditation, a service unit must meet the AdvancEd accreditation standards, implement a continuous process of improvement, and host an external review team once every five years.  
      As a part of the accreditation process, a team of trained professionals from across the state and nation reviewed ESU #1 documents and performance data; interviewed agency and community stakeholders; and observed agency practices in action. The team offered both commendations and recommendations to the agency.
     “AdvancEd accreditation demonstrates that ESU#1 has met the highest level of standards. We are proud of our partnerships with school districts and the recognition for outstanding service provided by our employees,” said ESU #1 Administrator Dr. Bill Heimann. 
      ESU #1 is proud to be AdvancEd accredited since October 2011.

Using Data to Guide Action for School Improvement
     “Using Data to Guide Action for School Improvement” was a collaborative project between the Nebraska Department of Education, the Nebraska ESU Coordinating Council and North Central Comprehensive Center. A Data Guidebook and Facilitators’ Guide were generated from this project and piloted by three northeast Nebraska schools — Niobrara, South Sioux City and Walthill.
