AIAASC is governed by a Commission Board that jointly serves ECA and AIAASC. The Board is led by a President, Vice-President and three at-large members. To be eligible for membership on the Commission, a person must have been actively involved in the profession of education either as a teacher or administrator and have experience in the issues relating to international schools and accreditation.
Accrediting Agencies recognized by the U.S department of Education
The U.S. Department of Education makes it very clear that there are “no specific federal laws or regulations governing the recognition of associations that accredit primary and secondary schools, and the U.S. Department of Education has no oversight role with respect to school accreditation.”2 The U.S. Department of Education “does not have the authority to accredit private or public elementary or secondary schools, and the Department does not recognize accrediting bodies for the accreditation of private or public elementary and secondary schools. However, the U.S. Department of Education does recognize accrediting bodies for the accreditation of institutions of higher (post secondary) education. If an accrediting body which is recognized by the Department for higher education also accredits elementary and secondary schools, the Department’s recognition applies only to the agency’s accreditation of post secondary institutions.
