Visiting Team Resources - 2017 Process

Thank you for volunteering your time!

NEASC-CIS Visiting Team Members are an outstanding asset to the process of accreditation. These well-trained peer reviewers put their best efforts forth when they visit our schools to observe teaching and learning, meet with members of the learning community, and validate the findings from the school's self-assessment.
