The Accreditation Process

The Committee on Public Elementary and Middle Schools has developed various resources to support its member schools throughout the accreditation process. Schools are encouraged to download them and have them available to staff and community.

The NEASC Accreditation process is a 10-year cycle intended to serve as a guide for schools to meet their own goals for student learning based on alignment with research-based Standards for Accreditation. Secondarily, it serves as an important exercise for assessing the systems in place for self-reflection on an ongoing basis, the school’s capacity for continuous growth, and the ability to be an effective learning organization.

Each school is assigned a professional staff liaison who can assist school officials at any point during the process.  In addition, the Commission has recently begun to work with other professional organizations in order to provide on-going professional development for its member schools and sponsors a number of programs and events for schools at various points during the accreditation cycle.
