New Mexico School for the Deaf Announces Accreditation & Strategic Plan Initiative

New Mexico School for the Deaf Announces Accreditation & Strategic Plan Initiative

A Five Year Cycle

Every 5 years, NMSD goes through an accreditation process under the Conference of Educational Administrators of Schools and Programs for the Deaf (CEASD). The accreditation process also drives NMSD’s five-year strategic planning process.

In preparation of NMSD’s accreditation renewal in 2023, NMSD has hired Innivee Strategies, Inc., a Deaf-led organizational and leadership development firm, to support the accreditation process. This includes developing community surveys in ASL, English, and Spanish, analyzing the data, supporting our internal accreditation team, and facilitating the development of our next strategic plan.

“Making History”

Innivee Strategies, Inc. supports organizations in making data-oriented, community-driven decisions when it comes to determining strategy and the organization’s future direction. Innivee Strategies is excited to add accreditation support to its roster of services, and is looking forward to making history with NMSD by producing innovative CEASD accreditation surveys that can be taken and answered in ASL and written English/Spanish!

The Innivee Strategies team will work closely with NMSD throughout the spring and summer. The NMSD community can look for the surveys this fall! If you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected].
