Setting a higher standard. Making the best schools even better.
Every day in our classrooms, we challenge our students to work harder, dig deeper, reach higher, and strive to achieve their very best. By implementing the high standards and best practices required to earn the distinction of FCIS accreditation, we ask nothing less of ourselves
Dear school leader,
NAIS has encouraged its members to review their procedures for addressing allegations of abuse or misconduct. The association has created and curated a number of resources to help schools develop strong prevention programs and understand their mandatory reporting obligations if someone discloses abuse that happened recently or in the distant past.
To access the resources:
- Go to http://connect.nais.org
- If you have already signed up for NAIS Connect or if you have a log-on for the main NAIS website, just enter that username and password.
- If you do not yet have a username and password, please create a profile. Professionals at schools that are not members of NAIS will be able to access several open communities. If you need help with your login, please contact email@example.com.
- In the grey navigation bar, click on "Communities" and then on "All Communities"
- Scroll down the list of communities until you see "NAIS Open Forum." Click the JOIN button.
- Once you join, you will be able to view and participate in discussions and review documents in the library. This community will also serve as a forum for discussion of other important issues in independent education.
Our schools are tight-knit communities that surround children with caring, trusted adults, and we are proud of the healthy relationships between faculty and students. But we are not immune to the problems that afflict society at-large. We must be vigilant as we work to protect children from sexual predators. There is no higher priority at independent school than the safety and well-being of our students.
