South-Central REACH 2.0 Accreditation Training, Houston, TX
January 20, 2016–January 21, 2016
The MET Church, Houston, TX
The ACSI South-Central Region is pleased to announce the New REACH 2.0 Accreditation Training Program. There are several important changes that have been made to this training format. It is important to note that beginning in 2016-17 all schools seeking ACSI accreditation will be required to use the REACH 2.0 protocol. Please read this material carefully so that you will be attending the appropriate sessions designed to meet your needs.
REACH 2.0 has been very well done to benefit our schools. We believe it to be the best school improvement tool yet. It is a more efficient, yet thorough protocol. It will ultimately utilize an online platform to make it easier for schools and visiting teams to complete. Because of the significant differences, we are planning REACH 2.0 training for schools and for chairs/teams.
We are pleased to offer two days of training in the Kansas City area. We have a cap of 40 registrants for these trainings. We realize that this is short notice for some of you, but we had requests from many schools that were ready to begin the process in preparation for a team visit this spring and the following year. We will continue to offer training for chairs and schools in the future in both live and virtual formats.

Day one is for experienced chairs/team members and schools renewing accreditation. We will cover the changes in the new REACH 2.0 protocol as well as assist in understanding the details of the accreditation process. The REACH 2.0 Standards and Indicators (particularly the non-negotiables), new points of emphasis, the online platform, as well as some of the new accreditation tools will be presented with significant time for questions and answers.
Day two is for schools new to the accreditation process and less experienced chairs/team members who desire full training. Areas covered include the essential elements of the self-study process and the team visit process from both the school and the chair/team perspectives. Schools that are not presently in candidate status but are interested in eventually pursuing ACSI accreditation may also want to attend this training.
