SACS CASI Contact Information

Welcome to the new Broward County Schools SACS CASI Information System. This web page was designed so that district staff and the Broward County community could become more familiar with a new protocol offered by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI), District Accreditation as a Quality System. This distinction is the highest level of accreditation that a school system can receive from the SACS CASI organization.

Currently, the Broward County School District is recognized as the nation's largest fully accredited school district. This means that annually, every Broward County school meets or exceeds the accreditation standards that support student achievement. Through this traditional method of accrediting schools, individual schools are reviewed for accreditation eligibility, with the district's central office staff playing a limited but important role.

Because of Broward County's long-standing reputation for providing a high-quality education to every Broward County Public School student, the district began actively seeking District Accreditation as a Quality System.

According to the SACS CASI organization, the development of the district accreditation protocol is in response to requests from superintendents and other district leaders throughout the nation who wanted to better coordinate accreditation with ongoing system improvement initiatives, state and district mandates.

With the district accreditation protocol, a full examination of Broward County's program initiatives to improve student learning, as well as a review of its K-12 schools and high-quality academic programs, will further validate that all District components are actively working together to ensure that every student receives a high-quality education.

District Accreditation as a Quality System will validate Broward County's outstanding accomplishments as well as recognize the efforts of every Broward County School District employee.
