When the Commission determines that a written report is not sufficient to monitor a concern or need, it may require that the school host a Directed Visit. Directed Visits are conducted by one or two educators who represent the Commission and will spend a day or a portion of a day in the school. The purpose of the Directed Visit is to ascertain firsthand the progress a school is making toward resolving the Commission's concerns, and to validate the steps the school is taking to lessen the concerns. During the Directed Visit, Commission representatives may visit classrooms and meet with members of the educational community.
The school may be requested to prepare materials to be used during the Directed Visit. However, the formal Directed Visit Report is written by the Commission representatives and submitted to the Commission for action. After review by the Commission, a letter summarizing the visit conclusions is sent to the school.
