On September 25 in the 8:30am worship service at the Shawnee campus, Jim Bradshaw, Assistant to the President for Education and Youth of the KS District of the LCMS presented the preschool with reaccreditation from National Lutheran Schools Accreditation.
NLSA accredits schools that comply with national standards for Lutheran schools and reflect the essential qualities that are expected of Lutheran schools. Four Lutheran educators from Kansas and Missouri served as our accreditation team and were onsite to see the wonderful things happening at Trinity Lutheran Church Preschool. The team also suggested ways to make our program even better. Please continue to pray for the success of the preschool and God’s blessings upon the children and families we have been blessed to serve. With God’s help, may we be a shining light for years to come!
What is Evidence Based Accreditation?
Evidence Based Accreditation (EBA) is objective rather than subjective in nature. It requires that schools identify evidence and practices pertaining to each indicator. The significance of the evidence and its impact results in a high indicator rating by the school. Through this, the EBA process removes the subjective nature of what a school hopes to become and requires realistic objective evaluation of the current school and their present strengths and accomplishments.
