Serving On A Visiting Team

Serving on an accreditation team is one of the most unique and valuable powerful professional development experiences you will encounter in your career as an educator. It's also an important responsibility and a service to your peer schools within the AISNE network.

During a visit, team members:

  • Assess a school's alignment with AISNE Membership Criteria & Accreditation Standards;
  • Evaluate the school's programs and practices through the lens of its unique mission;
  • Observe the school in full operation and validate the degree to which it is living its mission and doing what it says it's doing in its self-study; and,
  • Develop commendations and recommendations to guide the school's continuous improvement.

If you're interested in serving on a visiting team, please let your Head of School know of your interest and encourage him or her to contact Sara Wilson, Director of Accreditation, to recommend you. AISNE reaches out to AISNE heads periodically throughout the year to solicit nominees for teams.
