What does “Probation” mean for jointly accredited providers?

Probation is given to jointly acredited providers that have serious problems meeting the Joint Accreditation requirements. Providers on Probation are required to submit progress reports. Jointly accredited providers may have their status changed to Probation if their progress reports do not demonstrate correction of noncompliance issues. Most providers on Probation implement improvements quickly, return to a status of Joint Accreditation, and sustain compliance. Providers cannot remain on Probation for longer than two years.
