For the past seven to eight months, Trinity’s faculty and staff, School Ministry Team members and parents, have been gathering, analyzing, and checking information – a self-evaluation of sorts.
It’s all part of the National Lutheran School Accreditation (NLSA) process.
“I’m so thankful of the work and time put in by everyone,” Trinity principal Bill Meyer said. “Pretty much all the work is done outside of the school day. We are blessed.”
Trinity will welcome a six-member validation team to our campus.
The purpose of the team is to validate the information prepared by Trinity. The team examines evidence, meets with staff, visits classrooms, and observes overall school practices.
“This process pushes us to be the best,” Trinity first-grade teacher James Ullman said. “It’s an opportunity to rejoice at all the things that we are doing well, and to find out what needs attention.”
Five years ago, the visiting NLSA team recommended safety improvements, and to add an associate principal position.
The vestibule at the entrance of the school was created, while other safety measures were put into place. Trinity also elevated Ms. Jensen to a part-time assistant principal role.
