TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Amphitheater Public Schools has been recommended for accreditation by an AdvancED accreditation team.

The AdvancED Accreditation Process, a protocol embraced around the world, is a comprehensive program of evaluation and external review, supported by research-based standards, and dedicated to helping schools, districts and education providers continuously improve, according to officials.

The goal of the team's visit was to discover how well all the parts of the education system , the district, school, and classroom work together to meet the needs of students.

"We are very excited and committed to going through this rigorous evaluation process. The AdvancED evaluation team recognized quickly the many strengths of our district, and also made recommendations for areas that need greater attention," said Superintendent Patrick Nelson.

The district will receive a detailed report from the external review team in May.
