K-12 Accreditation Manual


The K-12 Accreditation Manual is more than just a listing of the Standards, it is a detailed teaching aid, to assist you and your team throughout the accreditation process.

In addition to the K-12 Accreditation Manual, the FCCPSA hosts and videos a number of workshops each year, on the "what does that mean" questions thay you may have.

The FCCPSA proudly maintains an accreditation partnership agreement that provides AdvancED/SACS accreditation to FCCPSA schools. This partnership allows schools to obtain both FCCPSA and SACS accreditation through one *seamless process. (*Subject to the provisions of the FCCPSA policy manual.)

In 1996, the Florida Legislature established the Gold Seal Quality Care program to acknowledge child care facilities and family day care homes that are accredited by nationally recognized agencies and whose standards reflect quality in the level of care and supervision provided to children.

The Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) requires that all full member senior high schools be accredited by one of 16 approved accrediting agencies to play sports in the state league.
