Duval County Public Schools is proud to be an accredited member of AdvanceED, the world's largest non-profit accrediting organization of educational institutions. The goal of AdvancED is to assist schools and systems in their continuous improvement journey. As a part of that process, educational organizations agree to be a part of rigorous, on-site review every five years.
Duval County Public Schools is in the self-study process, and will be welcoming a visiting committee to the district October 21-24, 2018. This site has been developed to better inform the DCPS staff as well as provide information to the community at large regarding the new protocol of the Advanc-Ed District Accreditation as a Quality System process. District Accreditation is the highest level of accreditation that a school system can receive from this organization, and we are looking forward to this process.
Currently, all Duval County Public Schools are fully accredited by AdvancED. Through this long-established method of accrediting schools, individual schools are reviewed and renewed annually for accreditation eligibility.
District Accreditation, as a quality assurance process, has corroborated our district’s efforts to provide quality education for all of our students and recognize our accomplishments. We invite you to review the information on this website to become familiar with the process of quality assurance, and learn more about Duval County Public Schools.
