The primary purpose of the Site Team is to assist the Center in maintaining its high standard of education through its continued adherence to the Standards as an Accredited Member Center of ACPE. The Site Team has the responsibility to ensure that the documentation it receives is ready for conversation and review and to provide feedback that is professional, consistent, competent, and collegial.

The Site team also seeks to understand the center’s story and its on-going, developing narrative of its history and work, and to use this information to discern how the center is complying with ACPE Standards .

The Commission identifies and trains specially qualified persons to serve as chairs and members of site teams. Site team chairs report directly to the Commission. Each site team is comprised of two ACPE Certified Educators, one of whom is the National Site Team Chair, and a practitioner member.
