The self-study process first convenes a Steering Committee, the governing body to oversee the process. The Steering Committee identifies priorities and outcomes, constructs working groups, manages evidence sources, drafts the final report, and hosts the site visit.

Eight Working Groups will also gather, synthesize, analyze, and report on evidence as related to the standards and priorities.
