The Sustaining Excellence Protocol is an option that permits “leading schools” to earn reaccreditation by focusing their time, energy, and resources, and that of their community of stakeholders, on:

Ø  Identifying an aspect of the school's educational program, services, and/or learning environment the school and its community of stakeholders desire to grow and/or improve in order to produce even higher levels of student performance or creative ways to measure student performance;

Ø  Discovering how current research informs efforts to grow and improve the aspect of the school's educational program, services, and/or learning environment on which the school wishes to focus;

Ø  Developing a proposal for an action research project to demonstrate application of that research in the living laboratory of the school;

Ø  Implementing the research project and documenting the results of implementation; and,

Ø  Sharing what was learned from the implementation with the broader education community in the form of a colloquium
