SAIS Results

We are happy to share two documents to help our community understand the results of our re-accreditation work. First, you will find a comprehensive summary that outlines the process, summarizes key findings, and provides recommendations/commendations. Second, you can review a slide presentation that solely focuses on the commendations and recommendations in each of our goal areas. We hope you find this informative and please feel free to reach out to Mr. Orlando if you have further questions.
