PRINCIPLES OF EXEMPLARY PRACTICE

  • The Arts Schools Network promotes high quality arts education by acknowledging the values embraced by member schools.

  • Those schools that submit an application for recognition and meet the Arts Schools Network’s Principles of Exemplary Practice are awarded an EXEMPLARY SCHOOL designation and certificate of exemplary practice, symbolizing their commitment to excellence.

Certificates of Exemplary Practice are issued to individual schools in recognition of excellence in their efforts to evaluate strategically their purpose, operations, and educational programs. The design of the evaluation for EXEMPLARY SCHOOL designation is based on the short version of the Guide to Assessing Your School, a document jointly created by the Arts Schools Network and the Accrediting Commission for Community and Pre‐collegiate Arts Schools (ACCPAS) as a way to assist arts school personnel with important responsibilities for planning, evaluating, and implementing effective organizational development. The Guide is an assessment tool that uses questions based on ACCPAS accreditation standards.
