18 One of major challenges the Midvale School District is a facilities issue. The current facilities, while well-maintained, are timeworn and not sufficient for today’s educational needs. The school board and administration are commended for their efforts to find ways to maintain current facilities and expand facilities to meet existing and future needs, using cost- effective measures. Given the resistance from many community members to expand facilities, it is incumbent for the administrators and board members to gain stronger support for their plans through survey, community meetings, neighborhood meetings, walk-through’s, use of outside experts, etc. The need for additional space that is more accommodating to meet the educational needs of today’s and tomorrow’s learners is evident. Midvale School District has many obvious strengths but the classroom experience for today’s learner is enhanced by having more access to classroom technology, and other hands-on activities which are simply not currently available. Challenges 18

19 The External Review Team recommends to the AdvancED Accreditation Commission that Midvale School District #433 earn the distinction of accreditation for a five- year term. AdvancED and the Commission on Accreditation will review the results of the External Review to make a final determination including the appropriate next steps for the institution in response to these findings. Recommendation 19

20 The External Review Team: –Appreciates your hospitality, support and professionalism. –Respects and acknowledges the efforts to improve the quality of your school system. –Congratulates your system and community on completing the requirements for system Accreditation. Final Thoughts 20
