Moratorium on Site Visit Overrides
The CACREP Board of Directors (BOD) is placing a moratorium, effective immediately, on the procedural ability for a program to override not being recommended during the initial desk review to proceed to site visit planning. The recommendation from the initial reviewers during the desk review to proceed or not to a site visit is the final determination on the matter. The BODs decision stems from a variety of factors, including: the cancellation of all in-person site visits for Spring and Summer 2020; the resulting backlog of site visits and site visits that continue to accrue; and, the need to appropriately direct limited resources during this time of unprecedented stress on the accreditation site visit review process. Programs not recommended to proceed to site visit planning will need to reapply for a new accreditation review at another time. The moratorium will run through June 30, 2021, and then be revisited as appropriate.
