AdvancED Oklahoma's Fall Conference will be Sept. 18 in Edmond


AdvancED Oklahoma's Fall Conference will be Sept. 18, 2012, at the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond.

AdvancED brings together more than 100 years of experience and the expertise of three US-based accreditation agencies — the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI), Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC), and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI).  NCA CASI has been accrediting schools and districts in Oklahoma since 1909 (Muskogee High School was the first).

If you have an AdvancED/NCA CASI accreditation visit in the next five years (school or district), this conference will provide information regarding the standards and protocols for the visits.  If you are interested in becoming NCA CASI accredited, attending the conference is a great way to learn about using the accreditation process as a powerful school/district improvement tool.  It’s also an excellent way to network with other educators from around Oklahoma.  A light breakfast and buffet lunch are provided with registration.
