Senior Department Official Recommends Continued Agency Recognition for ACICS


ACICS Compliant with 19 of 21 Criteria with 12 Months to Demonstrate Compliance with Two Criteria

  

On September 28, the Senior Department Official (SDO) at the U.S. Department of Education released a detailed decision determining that the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) is in compliance with 19 of the 21 federal recognition criteria currently applicable to accrediting agencies (34 CFR Part 602). Furthermore, the SDO determined that "ACICS was likely in compliance with many of these criteria in 2016 at the time of the Secretary's Decision" in 2016 that revoked ACICS recognition.

Department of Education Further Extends Deadline to Respond to ACICS Petition for Continued Recognition

On August 28, 2018 the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) received notification from the Department of Education that it seeks additional time to respond to ACICS's petition for continued recognition, citing “the voluminous nature of the records under review” in asking for the second extension.  The Department now has until September 28, 2018 to respond. The original deadline of July 30 was first extended to September 4, 2018.

ACICS continues to support the Department's efforts to take the time necessary to make a reasoned decision regarding ACICS's continued compliance with federal agency recognition criteria. In accordance with the April 3, 2018 order from the Secretary, ACICS continues to operate as a federally recognized agency.

Release of the 2018 Draft Staff Report
6/13/2018 06:07:38 PM | News and Accreditation Alerts

Statement from Michelle Edwards, President of ACICS on the Release of the 2018 Draft Staff Report 

Background:

 

In response to the recent release by the U.S. Department of Education of a March 2018 Draft Staff Report regarding ACICS recognition, it is important to understand that the Draft Staff Report was exactly that – a draft report – prepared as a preliminary review of an Initial Petition for recognition filed by ACICS in 2017. The draft report was not intended to, and did not, reach a final determination on whether ACICS was or was not compliant with any recognition criteria. Consistent with the traditional process at the Department, the Draft Staff Report represented the beginning of an iterative process between an accreditor and the Department, not the final conclusion.

ACICS Submits Response to Department of Education Regarding Continued Federal Recognition, Ends Effort to Halt FOIA Release of Draft Staff Report

On May 30, the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) submitted a response to the Secretary of Education regarding its continued federal recognition as an accreditor. The submission was filed in response to the April 3, 2018 order of the Secretary of Education, which permitted ACICS to provide an explanation of how certain materials previously submitted by ACICS to the Department, but not considered as part of its earlier decision-making, are relevant to demonstrating ACICS’s continued compliance with federal agency recognition criteria. The Secretary’s decision regarding the continued recognition of ACICS is due by July 30, 2018.

Secretary of Education Orders Restoration of ACICS as a Federally Recognized Accrediting Agency as of December 2016
4/3/2018 06:17:00 PM | News and Accreditation Alerts

Secretary of Education Orders Restoration of ACICS as a Federally Recognized Accrediting Agency as of December 2016 and Outlines Next Steps  in the Compliance Review Process   On Tuesday, April 3, 2018, the Secretary of Education issued an Order notifying ACICS that the U.S. Department of Education has restored ACICS's status as a federally recognized agency as of December 12, 2016.  The Order comes in response to the recent ruling from U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton that the U.S. Department of Education violated the Administrative Procedures Act by "failing to consider various categories of relevant evidence" in its decision to withdraw ACICS' recognition as a nationally-recognized accreditor.  The case was remanded back to the Secretary of Education. Michelle Edwards, ACICS President, issued the following statement regarding the Order: "We were gratified by the court's ruling requiring the Department to review evidence submitted by ACICS documenting many meaningful reforms implemented by the organization.  And we appreciate the timely response by the Department, reinstating our recognition as of December 2016 and outlining the next steps in the compliance review process. The Department's decision ensures that students currently attending ACICS schools are not negatively impacted pending the Department's ongoing review process. In the last two years, ACICS has implemented significant reforms designed to address concerns, strengthen the accreditation process and, ultimately, enhance our ability to hold schools accountable for meaningful student outcomes.  These efforts are comprehensive and ongoing, and we look forward to working with the Department to ensure we are not only in full compliance with current requirements, but also in a position to become, over time, a leader among accreditors."    Click here to read the full order

All the legal briefs have been filed with the U.S. District Court in the ACICS lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Education.  ACICS has requested oral argument in the matter and the Court has discretion to allow such argument but no date has yet been set for such argument.   The record before the Court is voluminous and there is also a dispute as to what should be included in the record.  ACICS contends that the Department of Education has failed to include over 35,000 pages of pertinent documents. A decision from the Court is expected over the next several months unless the case is resolved in some other manner before the Court issues its decision.
