Other reports which address changes that may occur at Member schools include the following:

Homestay Program Report

The Commission has observed the significant (and increasing) numbers of international students enrolling in member day schools. The interest of international students in attending our schools presents great opportunities, but it also calls on the Commission to consider its responsibilities in the context of accreditation. The Commission must maintain its standards to assure the well-being of those students and the continual institutional integrity of our schools. Furthermore, the Department of Homeland Security relies on NEASC accreditation when approving schools to receive international students.

Schools are asked to include homestay students when providing enrollment figures on each year's Annual Report.

In addition, the Commission will request a Report on Standard 8: Homestay Program from schools that enroll any homestay students. Homestay students are those students (usually international) who live with someone unrelated to them, as with a host family in the local area. Upon receipt of the report, CIS staff will determine whether a visit to the school is warranted to supplement and clarify the information provided.

Report forms and instructions for filing a Report on Standard 8: Homestay Program are below:

Substantive Change Report

A school will submit a Substantive Change Report when one or more grades, an Early Childhood Program*, Residential Program or Post-Graduate Program are added. 

*For NEASC accreditation, Early Childhood is defined as three-year and four-year old children. NEASC does not accredit Early Childhood Programs that serve children under the age of three. However, if schools enroll children younger than three years old, they must provide documentation attesting that those programs meet health and safety regulations/guidelines as required in your state.

Please report substantive changes by sending us a letter or reporting it on your Annual Report in the fall.  You may also contact a member of the CIS staff for more information, including specific due dates.
