Q: Once you're accredited, are you done? Or is there an ongoing evaluation between site visits?
A: Accreditation is not static. Accredited schools continue to be monitored through yearly reports which must demonstrate continual self-evaluation and improvement in all aspects of each standard. These annual reports are reviewed by members of the COE and then presented for discussion to the full Council at the spring meeting. Accreditation status may change after that meeting, with movement from limited to full accreditation if a school demonstrates correction of deficiencies or movement from full to limited if a school does not demonstrate progress toward correction of deficiencies formerly identified or if new problems arise.
