Independent Schools Association of the Southwest

Visiting Committee Members

Heads of ISAS schools understand that the effectiveness of the accreditation process depends on the qualifications of Visiting Committee members.  They nominate personnel for Visiting Committee service of whom they can be proud, both as representatives of their schools and of the Association.  The process of committee recruitment is based on balancing areas of expertise and levels of previous committee experience and on achieving a representative mix of ISAS schools and diverse perspectives.

Committee members cite the Accreditation Visit as valuable professional development and find reward in working with the community toward deeper fulfillment of the school’s mission.

The following resources will be helpful in preparing for service on a Visiting Committee:
