Ongoing Accreditation

Accredited public technical and career schools/centers

An accredited school must host an Accreditation Visiting Team every 10 years; e.g. the Decennial Visit. Because Accreditation is an ongoing process, NEASC expects that members schools will make continuous efforts between visits to address the recommendations highlighted during the Decennial Visit and maintain communications about their progress through required follow up reports and any special progress reports that may be requested. It is the role of the Commission to monitor the progress of schools as they address the Standards for Accreditation. 

Training workshops and seminars are regularly scheduled in order to provide schools with guidance regarding the follow up reports and to assist schools in future planning and implementing school improvement.
