AdvancED Launches New Web Site

AdvancED has launched a new Web site – - with a fresh look and refined navigation!  We took your advice and made the Web site both user-friendly and more up-to-date.  We’ve included new sections on School Improvement and Issues in Education, and added more news items.  Check out AdvancED’s new Web site and find out how we are fostering new ideas and solutions, putting schools and districts first, advancing excellence, and transforming education.

As part of the AdvancED Web site redesign, we have moved all Accreditation Resources and Tools to a single, convenient location.  These resources will only be available to institutions involved in AdvancED Accreditation.  Many of the tools and resources have been updated and new ones have been added.  Because these resources have been placed in a repository created only for schools and districts involved in the accreditation process, your principal, head of school, or superintendent will have details on locating these resources and tools.                

Self Assessment Resources Available

AdvancED has developed online resources to assist schools with completing the new Self-Assessment (SA) tool and Executive Institutional Summary (EIS).  Schools can access a two part instructional video composed of two elements:  Part A, focuses on “Collecting the Data” and Part B, is about “Entering the Information.”  Two online guides for accessing and completing the SA and EIS are available as well.  Schools will find this learning resource very informative and easy to use.  Please contact our office to find out how you can begin using theses resources today.


AdvancED, the home of NCA CASI and SACS CASI, is dedicated to
advancing excellence in education worldwide.
