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.

Executing Accreditation Pilot Surveys: Industry Best Practices

Standard: Commitment to School Improvement

Date: May 31, 2016


Please join Innovative Research Group by webinar to review the accreditation survey templates and industry best practices on survey design and analysis.

CAIS members adhere to national standards that inspire continuous whole school improvement. As are part of the continuous improvement process, CAIS will be moving towards standardized surveys of key constituencies as part of the accreditation process. For the next few years, schools will not be required to conduct these surveys using a standardized questionnaire or with mandatory questions. However, CAIS is encouraging members to start from a common survey template in order to ensure that the surveys are asking relevant and appropriate questions. Innovative Research Group and CAIS have prepared accreditation survey templates that can be used by schools to design their own accreditation surveys. These templates give a questionnaire structure and set of suggested questions various constituency groups.

Who should participate:
Heads, Chairs, Accreditation Administrators, Marketing and Communications Managers.
