When there are significant areas that are noted for improvement, a Performance Improvement Plan (PIP) is required for the program. This plan must be submitted by the candidate within 90 days of receiving the final site visit report. If there are critical, time-dependent issues or if the improvement process requires acceleration, the timelines may be adjusted as needed. A sample page from a PIP is below.
Upon submission, the PIP is reviewed and approved by the Accreditation Review Committee (ARC). If the PIP needs additional work, a revised PIP will be required within 60 days— and again, as necessary, in 30 days if the revised plan is not satisfactory.
CAPRSS will provide follow-up, verification, and support for implementing the PIP.
As organizations implement their plans, supportive materials (e.g., new policies), improvement data (e.g., new self study findings), and other evidence of progress will be submitted to CAPRSS, and reviewed by staff, and as appropriate, the ARC.
