School Accreditation Team-Member Training
Saturday, March 14 | 03:30 PM - 05:00 PM
Session 6: Workshops
If you are a staff member of an AMS-accredited school, you have the opportunity to volunteer on accreditation visiting teams that verify the self-study of candidate schools. Being on a team visit is a unique opportunity that provides valuable professional development for teachers and administrators. In this workshop, we will discuss the “do’s and don’ts” of being a team member. You will learn what is expected of each member, the process of writing a team report, and the professional benefits of being an accreditation team member.
