Audit/Review/Consultation

Overview

ACCIS is excited to offer three opportunities for college counselors and their respective secondary school programs to assess their current best practices and to enhance their ‘dashboard’ indicators in an ever-demanding market place. Whether it is through a full Audit, a more focused Review process, or a simple Consultation, ACCIS is ready to provide professional advice for colleagues to improve and develop themselves, their office, their service to students and parents as well as a wide range of constituents (e.g. faculty, administrators, alumni, trustees, college representatives).

While these opportunities are meant to assist college counselors, they are also meant to help schools become better educational institutions. Education is at the core of our work, and college counseling offices are the conduit between the internal and external constituencies that judge our learning environments.

We offer three approaches: Audit, Review and Consultation.

Audit

The Audit is the most robust and it includes an internal and external audit. From assessing the strengths of the program to identifying needs that are not being met in an ever-demanding business, the Audit team will capture a perspective that is sure to offer insight. The audit will include consulting with college admission representatives, who work closely with the prospective secondary school. From the questionnaire, a prospective secondary school can opt to include or exclude any part of the audit. Additional details for the Audit:

1) The Audit Team will be on your campus for a minimum of 2 days
2) Audit Team (minimum of 3 people) provides an electronic report
3) Fee: $5,000 plus transportation and accommodations for all Audit Team members

To request an audit or for more information, please contact Rhonda Collins at RCollins@accisnet.org.

Review

The Review focuses on a particular area of concern. The specifics are identified in the questionnaire and the Review Team strategizes about how best to address the concern. From the questionnaire, a prospective secondary school can opt to include or exclude any part of the Review. Additional details for the Review:

1) The Review Team (minimum of 2 people) will be on campus for a day
2) The Review Team provides an electronic report
3) Fee: $1,500 plus transportation and accommodations for all Audit Team members

To request a review or for more information, please contact Rhonda Collins at RCollins@accisnet.org.

Consultation

The Consultation focuses on a particular area of concern, but involves less overall work. The specifics are identified in the questionnaire and the Review Team strategizes about how best to address the concern. From the questionnaire, a prospective secondary school can opt to include or exclude any part of the Review. Additional details for the Review:

1) The Consultation Team (minimum of 2 people) will schedule a telephone conference
2) The Consultation Team provides a brief electronic report
3) Fee: $250
