The Children’s Guild receives reaccreditation for special education schools
Only three organizations in Maryland hold the distinction
BALTIMORE—The Children’s Guild special education schools in Baltimore City and Prince George’s County, Maryland, received reaccreditation from the National Commission for the Accreditation of Special Education Services.
Only three organizations in Maryland and 24 nationwide, including The Children’s Guild, hold this four-year accreditation, which assures families of students in need of special education services of quality education and provides recognition of excellence by independent, peer-reviewing experts from throughout the U.S.
“This is a distinguished honor we have achieved for more than a decade, as The Children’s Guild was the first school in Maryland to receive national accreditation,” said The Children’s Guild President and CEO Andrew Ross. “We’re proud we’ve met the accreditation’s high standards, but more importantly it demonstrates our commitment to providing the absolute best individualized education to our students as recognized by an independent body of special education experts.”
The National Commission for the Accreditation of Special Education Services was established in 1992 by the National Association of Private Special Education Centers, which represents private early intervention services, schools, residential therapeutic centers, postsecondary and adult living programs serving individuals with disabilities and their families.
The Children’s Guild is an affiliate member of the TranZed Alliance, a nonprofit organization serving children, families and child-serving organizations and dedicated to transforming how America educates and cares for its children through education, behavioral health and national training and consultation services. Affiliates of the TranZed Alliance also include Monarch Academy charter and contract schools, The Children’s Guild D.C. Public Charter School, The Transformation Education Institute, the National At Risk Education Network, the TranZed Conference Center, The National Children’s Guild Fund and TranZed Apprenticeship Services.
