ACS WASC/ACSI Visiting Committee Materials

Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI)

Typically, one or two ACS WASC members serve on joint ACSI ( visiting committees. ACS WASC members serve as integral members of the visiting committee and work collaboratively with ACSI to evaluate the school utilizing both ACS WASC criteria and the ACSI standards.

One of the important responsibilities of the ACS WASC member is to assist in the team’s understanding of whether or not the school is effectively addressing the ACS WASC criteria. ACS WASC members work with the rest of the visiting committee in determining the status recommendation, which is then submitted with necessary supporting documentation to both the ACS WASC Commission and ACSI’s Commission for final action regarding joint accreditation status. Please see the attached memo for additional information on the role of the ACS WASC-Appointed Visiting Committee Member.
