Cognia Accreditation

cognia logo

On January 31 - February 4, 2021, our School District earned system-wide accreditation by undergoing a rigorous process with Cognia formerly AdvancED.  The accrediting agency, Cognia, is a non-profit, non-partisan, international organization that conducts on-site and virtual reviews of Pre-K through grade 12 schools and school systems to help educators and their communities share innovative approaches to improve learning, teaching, and leading.

The Effingham County School District continues its standing of being a fully accredited district for the next five years (until February 2026).  The results and full report provides powerful, aligned, and proven pathways for addressing challenges that were shared with district and school leaders, teachers, and all stakeholders.  Click here to access the Final Cognia Engagement Review Report.
