      Partnership Agreement
     MDE/NCA (Signed 11/8/06
Goals of the Agreement:
 Reduce the expense and duplication of effort that occur
  when MDE and NCA CASI manage separate school/district
  improvement and accreditation systems.
 Align and support the work of schools and districts to
  engage in continuous improvement through NCA CASI
  accreditation and the MDE School Improvement
  Framework. (Press Release text available @
  www.ncamichigan.org
  and www.michigan.gov/schoolimprovement
             We Agree:
   NCA CASI agrees to support the use of the
    MDE School Improvement Framework as
    evidence of meeting the NCA CASI
    standard for continuous improvement.

   NCA CASI agrees to provide MDE with
    reports and documentation to verify
    schools/districts’ adherence to the NCA
    CASI accreditation standards.
             We Agree:
   NCA CASI agrees to provide professional
    development to schools/districts that supports
    the use of the MDE School Improvement
    Framework.

   MDE agrees to accept a school’s or district’s NCA
    CASI accreditation status as evidence of
    adherence to applicable MDE
    accreditation/improvement requirements to avoid
    duplicate reporting for schools/districts.
            We Agree:
   MDE agrees to recognize that
    schools/districts are accredited by NCA
    CASI on the Michigan report card and/or
    next version of ED YES! program.

   MDE will encourage the use of NCA CASI
    accreditation by schools and districts as a
    voluntary process to help them meet and
    exceed local, state, and federal
    requirements.
            We Agree:
   To the extent possible, NCA CASI and
    MDE will share the same documentation
    and reporting to avoid duplication of
    effort for schools/districts.

   NCA CASI and MDE will co-sponsor at
    least one statewide School Improvement
    Workshop each year available to all
    schools.
