Tentative assignments are included with the invitation. The visiting team leader may adjust assignments once the team is assembled. Your job will be to find congruence between what the school describes about itself in its self-study and what is observable during a three-day on-site visit. This is done through thorough review of the school's self study prior to the visit, and observation and interviews during the visit.
Seek, collect, and interpret data necessary to reach conclusions concerning the effectiveness of the school and its programs.
Prepare a written report summarizing the findings of the Visiting Team, including both commendations and recommendations for each part of the school as well as for the school as a whole.
