Strengthen Your School Leadership

CAIS values the constant and deliberate quest for excellence, and we recognize the vital leadership role that governors play, in partnership with Heads, in the success of our schools. We want all of our schools to have strong Heads who focus on supporting the students of the present, but we also want strong Boards that focus on supporting the students of the future.

The Governance Guide include new learning on a number of areas, including Human Resources, Risk Management, Head Transitions, and Consent Agendas.

Accreditation Resources

At CAIS, we are in the business of continuous improvement. We require our schools to always look at research and improve their practices for students, so we do the same. Below you will find resources that are annually updated by the CAIS Standards Council. In the past year alone, we have engaged over 130 volunteers from member schools as well as industry leaders to revise our Accreditation Guidelines; we have introduced four constituent surveys that are aligned with our National Standards (we are most excited to include student voice in our quest for excellence in education); and we have consulted with experts in risk management to ensure that all of our programs and procedures are in keeping with international standards of safety for students.

The Accreditation Resources have been moved to CAIS Connect, our member school portal. If you don't have an account or don't remember your login information, please contact us at iparadis@cais.ca.
