RBB Schools will host accreditation team

RBB Schools will host accreditation team
RBB Schools engages in a process of continuous quality improvement as a means for review and refinement of the services and operations it provides is students, staff, families and community. Part of this process includes an elective accreditation process through AdvancED - an international accrediting organization. The accreditation process involves an onsite review of our corporation operations and professional practices through an External Review process.

During the week of April 25th, RBB Schools will host an External Review Team consisting of educators from various parts of our nation including Indiana. Over the course of their visit, the External Review Team will spend their time learning about our school corporation through meeting with faculty and staff, interviewing parent and community stakeholders, visiting our schools and conducting classroom walkthroughs to gauge student engagement.  

In our self-assessment process, corporation committees identified various artifacts aligned with each of the AdvancED Standards of Quality. This evidence is available for public viewing on our corporation website. You may access our Standards-aligned evidence here.


If you have any questions about our accreditation process, you may contact Jason Bletzinger, Assistant Superintendent, at 812.876.7100 extension 2177 or jbletzinger@rbbschools.net.

Harmony 3 Family Access

We are switching our current Harmony Parent/Student portal to the New Harmony 3 Family Access and all parents should have received an email with the link to log in, as well as instructions for the setup.  Everyone needs to register with the new credentials, as we will be turning off the current version of the program on March 17th.

One of the advantages of the new Harmony 3 Family Access is that it allows parents and students to have separate accounts with their own user names and passwords to access information as well as set notifications.  Because the accounts are separate, students will not be able to make changes to any of the settings made by parents.

In the new program you will be able add all your students into one login and to see the following:

Progress Reports
Attendance
Discipline
Homework Agenda
Online Payments
Push Notification

The new site link is:


Harmony 3 Family Access Login

The link is also posted on the corporation as well as each building website.  We hope you enjoy the features of the new site.

We want your feedback!

We want your feedback!
Our school corporation is engaged in a continuous process of improvement. In an effort to inform our improvement practices and the practices of our school system, we are administering the AdvancED Parent Survey. Your opinion and feedback is important to us, and we ask that you take the time to complete this survey.

The online survey will be available from Monday, October 19, 2015 through 11:59pm on Sunday, November 1, 2015. In order to complete the survey, please click on this link: http://www.advanc-ed.org/survey/public/3453721, or copy and paste the link into your browser. As you complete this survey, please select the school your child currently attends so we can gather accurate information about the practices of our schools. Please be assured that your responses to this survey will be anonymous and your honest opinions are appreciated.

If you have any questions about this survey, please contact your child's building prinicipal or our Assistant Superintendent, Jason Bletzinger, at 812.876.7100 or jbletzinger@rbbschools.net. A brief list of Frequently Asked Questions have been listed below for your convenience. Thank you in advance for supporting Richland-Bean Blossom Community School Corporation’s improvement efforts.

Frequently Asked Questions about the AdvancED Parent Survey

1. Is this survey anonymous and confidential?Yes.

2. What if I have more than one child in this school, should I answer one survey for all of my children or one per child?One of the questions in the surveys asks the respondent to identify the grade of their oldest child so parents would only need to respond once if they have multiple children attending that particular school.

3. What if I have children attending multiple schools across the corporation? If a parent has children in more than one school across the corporation, they will need to complete a survey for each school at which they have a child in attendance.

4. What will this survey data be used for?Our faculty and staff will use these results to help plan for our improvement across each building and the corporation. Furthermore, we will use these results to facilitate focus group discussions for the development of our strategic plan.
