Mar 02, 2017 11:56AM ● Published by Pamela Johnson

 UPTON – Blackstone Valley Vocational School District announces that it will host a five-year follow up accreditation visit by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc. (NEASC).
 
The five-year focused visiting team will visit Blackstone Valley Tech on March 13-15. The five-year follow up is an accountability step for schools and colleges accredited by NEASC. The follow up ensures schools are complying with planned and recommended changes identified in the decennial accreditation notice.
 
“We always look forward to our accreditation visits as they provide us with valuable feedback,” said Rebecca Swasey, Director of Curriculum and Instruction, “It is also an exciting time to showcase the hard work and talents of our faculty, staff and students. As we strive for continuous improvement, this process is undoubtedly instrumental in facilitating and supporting that change.”
 
Blackstone Valley Tech received its original NEASC accreditation in 1968; the most recent decennial review was held in 2012. The decennial review suggested improvements to existing programs and implementation of new strategies. The BVT staff have completed or significantly progressed in each of the recommendations made by NEASC.
 
NEASC accreditation is an “ongoing, voluntary, and comprehensive” system of accountability. It is based on standards that define the characteristics of good schools and colleges. NEASC accreditation attests to “substantial compliance with established qualitative standards, integrity in statements to the public describing the institution’s program, institutional commitment to improvement, and sufficiency of institutional resources,” according to the NEASC website.
 
Blackstone Valley Regional Vocational Technical High School serves the towns of Bellingham, Blackstone, Douglas, Grafton, Hopedale, Mendon, Milford, Millbury, Millville, Northbridge, Sutton, Upton and Uxbridge. Located in the heart of the Blackstone Valley, Blackstone Valley Tech creates a positive learning community that prepares students for personal and professional success in an internationally competitive society through a fusion of vigorous vocational, technical, and academic skills. The school’s website is www.valleytech.k12.ma.us.
