Application for Accreditation 2023
We request that the Commission on Public Schools of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges accredit our school/district for the following:
(Please check one)
We understand that membership in the New England Association of Schools and Colleges requires that our school/district demonstrate commitment to the three phases of the Accreditation process: a self-reflection which involves the school/district's professional staff and other stakeholders, visits by a Collaborative Conference team and a Decennial Accreditation team, and a follow-up program to carry out valid recommendations contained in the Accreditation report and identified by the Commission in its correspondence. We further understand that membership requires that we provide members of our professional staff to serve as members of visiting teams throughout the decennial cycle.
Please provide the following information to assist us in determining the composition of the Collaborative Conference and Decennial Accreditation teams which are composed of administrators, guidance, library personnel, and classroom teachers.
1. Indicate the number of teachers (or full-time equivalent thereof) for each area below.
2. Indicate the school’s minority enrollment e.g., African-American, Asian, Hispanic, Latino, etc.
Every effort will be made to honor the school/district’s request.
