TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More), On June 29, 2021, I just learned that our District was awarded National Systems Accreditation through Cognia, formerly AdvancED. I just want to thank everyone for the hard work they put in this last COVID year and took on an internal and external accreditation review to boot. You guys are AWESOME! We did it again! Congratulations everyone, Colstrip is one of the few school districts in Montana to achieve system accreditation (K-12). All of our hard work paid off. Please know we will not receive the certificates for each school for another four weeks. We will have a celebration when you return to school this fall. Have a wonderful summer. See you soon. Bob.
