Call for Comment - CPME Publications 120 and 130 - The Committee appointed to review the documents related to college evaluation and accreditation began meeting in 2016, and Draft I of the rewrite of CPME publications 120 and 130 was disseminated to the community of interest in December 2017. The Council reviewed all comments received from the community of interest concerning Draft I at its April 2018 meeting and determined that due to the number and nature of the comments received, the Committee would reconvene to address the comments and to provide recommendations to the Council at its October 2018 meeting. The Council reviewed the recommendations made by the Committee and approved Draft II of CPME publications 120 and 130 at its October 2018 meeting.

Per CPME 130, Draft II revisions of CPME publications 120 and 130 will be open for comment for four months.
