Collaborative Learning Protocol
We have been accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) since 2003. In 2021, we began the process to acquire NEASC re-accreditation and IB re-authorisation through the new Collaborative Learning Protocol (CLP).
We submitted our NEASC Foundational Report and CLP Preparatory Report in January, 2022 in advance of our March 2022 Preparatory Visit. This visit introduced us to and supported us in the process for our continued reflection, evidence-gathering and planning practices. Having received approval from the visiting team, we are now beginning the Learning Community Reflection (LCR) stage of the CLP.
Throughout the yearlong LCR, with the guidance of our CLP mentor, PSI will promote a culture of inquiry, sharing and reflection. By consolidating the input gathered from stakeholders and engaging in candid reflection upon learning principles, we will collaboratively develop five learning plans which will focus on areas to guide our future planning. At the end of this year of reflection process, we will submit to both NEASC and IB a report which includes 2-3 future designs which we believe will have the most significant impact on student learning to implement over the subsequent four years.
