AdvancED District Accreditation

The Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Public School District is accredited by the AdvancED Accreditation Commission, the national commission that confers the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement accreditation seal. This means that the district and all of its schools are accredited, and that the Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Public School District is recognized across the nation as a quality school system.

The accreditation process involves three ongoing components: 1) meeting high quality standards; 2) implementing a continuous process of improvement; and 3) engaging in quality assurance through internal and external review. The district’s accreditation is for a five year term with regular monitoring of progress and reporting occurring during the term.

Dr. Mark Elgart, President/CEO of AdvancED, stated, “District Accreditation is a rigorous process that focuses the entire school system on the primary goal of creating lifelong learners. The Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Public School District is to be commended for engaging in this process and demonstrating a commitment to continuous improvement.”
