“Involvement in an ongoing accreditation protocol recognizes achievement and fosters and facilitates ongoing school improvement.”    (MSA-cess.org)

The planning team created subcommittees to plan, conduct and analyze the results of various sections of the self-study. Each subcommittee includes a chair, co-chair and members from the stakeholders. Each subcommittee will carry out its tasks and report to the planning team.

 The 7 subcommittees include:

  • Foundation Documents Subcommittee
  • Community & Student Performance Subcommittee
  • School Leadership and Organization Subcommittee
  • Educational Program & Resources Subcommittee
  • Student Services & Life Subcommittee
  • Maintenance & Operations Subcommittee
  • School Improvement Planning Subcommittee

The planning team revised the existing foundation documents, the SHS Mission Statement and its Beliefs. The updated documents are attached for your consideration.

SHS encourages all its stakeholders to support and take ownership of the planning process. Feel free to contact the planning team members personally, by calling the accreditation office (extension 103), or via email at planningteam@sagessehs.edu.lb.
