Commission Members - Public Schools


The NEASC Commission on Public Schools is a panel of 40+ professionals selected to represent our diverse membership from across New England. Individuals on the Commission include school and central office administrators, teachers, and members from the public sector. Commission members are nominated by member school principals or may self-nominate. A nominating subcommittee brings nominations forward for vote by the entire Commission. Any openings on the Commission are made public and announced to the member schools. Commission members may serve two three-year terms. Public members may serve two two-year terms. Commission member perspectives are informed by their own experience and knowledge of education. They are bound by explicit ethical standards to prevent conflict of interest. 

Using the Standards for Accreditation for public schools, the Commission members meet regularly throughout the year to review accreditation reports submitted by and about member schools, and provide commendations and recommendations specific to each school. This feedback serves as a roadmap for individualized and ongoing school growth and improvement for student learning. In addition, Commission members determine the accreditation status of each member school. 

NEASC is made up of three Commissions which work in close partnership to ensure quality education for all students in public, independent, and international schools, districts, and centers around the world. Meet the full NEASC Team.
