Boone: share why this is here as a prior year payment
deep concerns with relevance and price about NEASC accreditation
spent a day studying the process as they were looking to shift their practices
"not just superintendents and schools in Massachusetts that had concerns"
schools continued to identify themselves as NEASC schools
our payment of last year's dues does not reflect our ongoing commitment
have concerns with the pace of change and the content of change
will be making a recommendation to this body
what has been critical for high schools is if it is needed for college admission
not an impediment for admission to college
a number of districts have withdrawn from NEASC
"not ready to make that decision"
still have some ongoing concerns
