Hopson completed more than 30 hours of training credits to earn the distinction.

Weston accredited

ARLINGTON – Weston High School recently completed successful accreditation and was presented with a plaque to celebrate the milestone.

Bob Estes, the high school’s Association of Educational Service District coach, presented the award to Principal Will Nelson at Monday’s Arlington School Board meeting.

The AESD network grants six-year status for high schools based on meeting high-quality standards, test scores, discipline and student achievement. A team also conducts a site visit.

In a presentation, students and teachers talked about Weston’s focus on restorative justice and talking circles to help build a unique social and academic culture.

Estes said the AESD team came away impressed by their visit.

“The word you hear is culture,” he said. “It was evident to us the culture had improved. We had a wonderful time. That’s not our objective, but we had a great time.”
