Improvement Plans

If an organization does not meet one or more Accreditation Standards or is unable to adequately address any Areas of Concern to meet the Standards, the Council may request that the organization provide an Improvement Plan. The purpose of an Improvement Plan is to document for the Council any corrective actions an organization has taken or will take to satisfy any unmet Accreditation Standards.

If the organization does not complete program improvements by the assigned due date, the Council may place the organization into Accreditation-Pending, Reaccreditation-Pending, or on Probation.
