“Powerfully strong” accreditation score achieved at ISD, IESBVI
For the first time, Iowa Education for Deaf & Blind is seeking unified accreditation as an education service agency. In the past, both Iowa School for the Deaf and Iowa Educational Services for the Blind & Visually Impaired sought accreditation as special schools.
The result? Official determination on accreditation status won’t be until June, but when ranking indicators in the areas of leadership, learning and resources, a score of 371 out of 400 was achieved, according to Cognia, the not-for-profit private accrediting agency for schools used by Iowa Education for Deaf & Blind.
