Resources for schools - A Vision for Learning

for schools hosting Visiting Teams in the year 2020 and beyond

Besides the materials presented on our website, each school that is preparing for NEASC Accreditation is assigned a professional staff liaison who can assist school officials at any point during the accreditation process. In addition, the Commission on Public Schools  has recently begun to work with other professional organizations in order to provide ongoing professional development for its member schools and sponsors a number of programs and events for schools at various points during the accreditation cycle.
