Accreditation Visit

    Aloha All,
    I am just curious, and wondered if anyone knew the answer to this question.  Why all the secrecy behind the actual accreditation visit day?  I have served on accreditation visiting teams for WASC and WCEA, and all of the schools knew months in advance exactly what dates their visits would occur.  Yet, with NAEYC, the school remains in the dark until one day before.  The 15-day window is slightly helpful, but it would be great to just get the actual date instead of the window.  If anyone knows the reason for the secrecy, please share!

    This is a GREAT question! I've always wondered this myself. We have other quality rating visits that are announced, and I have observed that it minimizes anxiety and stress with the classroom teachers tremendously!
