Accreditation Workshops

in your school

SAIS accreditation workshops are designed for the school’s contact person(s) responsible for administering the process onsite. This could include the accreditation coordinator, steering committee and other administrative personnel. The workshop is time for reviewing the Guidebook and logistics of the process, and offers participants the opportunity to ask questions in an informal setting. The workshop fee is $75 per person.

If you would prefer to have the workshop in your school, relax and we will come to you! 

This is a great option if you want to drill down into the specifics of your school and have your entire team hear the same thing at the same time.

  • SAIS offers Chair Training sessions at the SAIS Annual Conference in the fall, at the Heads Leadership Retreat in the spring, and at several other times during the year. SAIS relies on the expertise of heads and senior administrators to serve as accreditation visiting team chairs. Typically, those who attend chair training will have served on several teams and been recommended by a visiting team chair. There is no workshop fee for Chair Training sessions.

  • SAIS provides information to team members when they confirm their ability to serve and SAIS maintains a short video to get a team member acquainted with serving on a team. The visiting team chair will lead the entire team through an orientation session at the beginning of the visit and will also provide some guidance prior via email. Please visit the Team and Schools Resource page for more information.
