Q: Why might a school not be fully ccredited?
A: There are 11 standards that schools must meet. If the full Council feels that any aspect of a standard is not being met, that is made clear to the school through written and verbal communications. Schools are placed on probationary accreditation if they have major deficiencies in one or more standards, or if a minor deficiency has not been corrected in one year. That school has two years to demonstrate resolution of deficiencies (one if a minor deficiency) or significant progress towards resolution. Schools may request an additional year for good cause. Once the school demonstrates compliance with the standard, accredited status may be granted after review by the full Council.
