NAF Academy of Engineering & Academy of Health Science in Jennings School District Reach Model Level

 

 

 

(St. Louis, Missouri) –NAF Academy of Engineering & Academy of Health Science in Jennings School Districtare among a group of more than 100 career academies who have reached NAF’s model level for 2018. These academies are being spotlighted for their excellent efforts in delivering high-quality educational experiences for high school students across the nation.

 

Model level is determined by an academy’s score on the assessment, which measures strengths and challenges in implementing NAF’s results driven educational design, followed by an onsite visit to the academy. The visit is conducted by a team of distinguished leaders, outside experts, and NAF staff to verify that the academy is meeting fidelity to an educational design that prepares students for success in college and careers. A subset of these high performing academies meet additional thresholds to reach Distinguished level – NAF’s highest level of achievement.

 

The assessment is designed to help all academies assess their progress and move up on the continuum of NAF’s standards.

 

“It is an honor and privilege to celebrate our distinguished and model academies who have exemplified NAF’s commitment to quality each and every day in our high school classrooms. We commend you on this tremendous achievement, and look forward to continuing to work together to ensure that all young people are college, career, and future ready,” said Katherine Blasik, Vice President, Research and Evaluation, at NAF.

 

 

 

The model academies will be recognized at NAF Next, NAF’s annual professional development conference, in Washington, DC this July.
