Spalding Accredited Schools

School accreditation is a voluntary process that signifies the school administration and staff are committed to increasing student achievement through ongoing Spalding Staff Development.

Accreditation provides evidence that the school staff has met rigorous external standards for The Spalding Method of language arts instruction. Spalding teacher training is accredited by the International Multi-sensory Structured Language Education Council (IMSLEC) and the International Dyslexia Association (IDA) that focus on the essential skills and behaviors identified by the National Reading Panel (NRP) and the Knowledge and Practice Standards for Teachers of Reading.
