The NESC is in the process of pursuing Education Service Agency (ESA) Accreditation through AdvancEd and hosted an Engagement Review by an external team September 24-27, 2017.  In preparation for this review, the NESC responded to a set of evaluative criteria that lays the foundation for improvement planning and implementation, otherwise known as the AdvancEd Performance Standards, which are broken down into three domains: Leadership Capacity, Learning Capacity, and Resource Capacity.  The NESC strives for exemplary performance and continuous improvement, and this accreditation framework is one of the many resources the NESC turns to for guidance and support.
