Under Russian law, every educational institution, whether it is a school, a university, a children's creativity center or a kindergarten, must periodically confirm the quality of its educational services.
These services must meet certain standards.
Confirmation of this compliance is called accreditation.
Why do I need accreditation?
Each school is accredited every five years. If the educational institution wants to change the status, that is, to turn from a general education school to a lyceum or a gymnasium, an additional procedure will be required. Accreditation is necessary first of all for the school to have the right to issue state-recognized certificates.
Sometimes there are situations when for one way or anotherReasons the school does not receive an accreditation document. Then the knowledge of graduates, according to which students do not pass a single state examination, checks the commission from an educational institution that has the necessary package of documents. The certificate will indicate the name of the school in which the child studied, and the one that issued the document. The second important point is getting financing from the budget. The state acts as a guarantor of the quality of educational services, and accordingly, provides financial assistance only to those educational institutions that have a document confirming the quality.
As a rule, the education committee has a plan,When what school should be certified, accredited or licensed. This is an open document accessible to all heads of educational institutions. The director can only prepare a package of documents according to the list and write a statement. After 105 days, the accreditation committee should notify the director of the decision to accredit or refuse.
The application must be accompanied by a full packageDocuments. After the application has been filed and registered, the accreditation commission considers the submitted data, and on this basis makes a decision. The list can be found on the official website of Rosobrnadzor. Particular attention should be given to proper design. An incorrectly executed document may become the basis for refusing accreditation. If all papers meet the requirements, the accrediting body shall decide on the merits. The notification of this is given to the applicant or his authorized representative within a week after the registration of the application. The accreditation body may enable the school to re-arrange certain documents or collect missing documents. This usually takes two weeks.
What does accreditation consist of?
Accreditation - expert assessment of the quality of knowledgeStudents, the qualifications of teachers, the conditions in which children learn, etc. Therefore, mandatory data are provided to the commission for accreditation of the final state certification, as well as the results of monitoring the quality of education in different parallels. If necessary, the accreditation committee has the right to conduct additional monitoring. A frontal audit or an assessment of the quality of knowledge in certain areas may be initiated. The package of documents should also contain data on qualification categories of teachers, the results of attestation of the teaching staff, etc.
