Dr. Jessica Swere presents accreditation certificate to Superintendent and Assistant Superintendent

We are happy to announce Hernando Schools' accreditation has been renewed through Cognia, a global nonprofit organization that serves more than 32,000 school districts in 90 countries! The accreditation was a huge undertaking for staff from departments throughout the district, a process that took about a year and a half!

Dr. Jessica Swere, Cognia's Regional Director, presented Gina Michalicka, Asst. Superintendent, with the certification at last week's School Board meeting. She also shared this "noteworthy practice" from the evaluation:
"Hernando County School District's operating practices both cultivate and set expectations for collegiality and collaboration. Curriculum and instruction practices are regularly assessed through a formal systemic process that ensures alignment, relevancy, inclusiveness and effectiveness of all learners. The professional learning communities provide high quality professional development and an opportunity for a professional staff to work together intentionally and consistently to review information, identify common problems, and implement solutions for all of its learners."

We are so proud of our amazing staff and educators, and all their hard work and dedication!
