A record 58 volunteers completed the training for AMS school accreditation team members in the 2011 – 2012 school year. Their participation on accreditation teams, along with the participation of AMS staffers Marie Conti and Sara Wilson, was vital to the process that resulted in AMS accreditation for 21 schools. We extend our thanks and appreciation to each and every one.
Accreditation teams are vital to the work of AMS school accreditation. Members visit AMS schools to evaluate their programs according to a prescribed set of standards. Based on their reports, the AMS School Accreditation Commission makes recommendations for accreditation to the AMS Board of Directors. It is through the dedication of these professionals that AMS school accreditation continues to thrive.
For information about how you can share your skills and knowledge with schools interested in pursuing accreditation, contact Marcy Rice or sign up for the complimentary AMS School Accreditation Team Member Orientation Webinar on Thursday, September 20, 2012 (6:00 – 9:00 PM ET).
