Accreditation, Certification, Highly Qualified Teachers, and Paraprofessionals
District One Schools are fully accredited by the SC Department of Education and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). These accreditations reflect the district’s adherence to standards in the area of curriculum, instruction, administration, and professional staffing. All of the district’s teachers are certified through the SC Department of Education and participate in on-going evaluation and professional development.
To comply with the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act enacted on January 8, 2002, District One Schools Spartanburg County has established procedures to ensure that highly qualified instructional staff are employed, and paraprofessionals are supported in becoming highly qualified.
Any questions regarding the accreditation of schools or the certification and other qualifications of teachers and paraprofessionals should be directed to Marsha Clark at T.E. Mabry Middle School at (864) 472-8402.
