UMSI's 1st Validated School
The United Montessori Schools of Indiana Board of Directors has begun work on a Montessori State Validation Project. School validation is a voluntary program for schools who want a way to demonstrate that they meet basic threshold standards, or components, of a fully implemented Montessori school. The UMSI Validation Committee is working, with support from Montessori-Now, to create a state wide program in support of all Montessori schools in Indiana.
The program is sponsored by UMSI and organized and run by volunteer Montessori educators.
Currently we have four pilot schools starting the statewide validation project. We are in the process of training validators.
If you are interested in becoming a validator EMAIL UMSI.
PILOT SCHOOLS -- FORMS are now posted to begin your validation project.
To learn more check out our Validation Project Overview or our FAQ about the project.
Contact UMSI if you have questions or comments. The Validation Committee would love to hear from you.

This committee is also working to help schools that are facing scrutiny from the Family Social Services Administration (FSSA) with regard to Infant / Toddler Program regulations.
