Parnall Elementary School, accredited by North Central Association (NCA) in 1987, has maintained Standard Accreditation by meeting all criteria such as keeping a well-trained staff and an adequate facility. In March 1995 we were granted Outcomes Accreditation Candidacy by the North Central Association. During the 1996-97 school year each target area goal committee presented staff in-service to implement and assess each goal. We received a positive validation from a North Central visitation team that year.During the 1997-98 school year the Accreditation team visited Parnall. Their recommendation was that Parnall receive outcomes accreditation. In March of 1998 Parnall was elected as an NCA outcomes accredited school at the NCA annual convention in Chicago. Each year since then Parnall’s accreditation has been renewed at the NCA convention. In 2008, Parnall participated in a Quality Assurance Review by NCA and again received accreditation. This year we will continue to further our work on the School Improvement goals.
