WASC

What is WASC?  The Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) is one of six official academic bodies responsible for the accreditation of public and private universities, colleges, secondary and elementary schools in the United States and foreign institutions of American origin. Schools go through the WASC accreditation process every six years. During this process, schools must conduct a self study that examines all aspects of a school including organization, vision for learning, curriculum, assessment, instructional strategies and school climate and culture. This self study examines data from a variety of sources and produces a detailed report that highlights both the successes and the critical needs of students and provides an action plan for continued improvement. Students, staff, parents, and teachers all play a critical role in the self study process. At the end of the six year cycle, a WASC accreditation team visits the school, reviews the school's self study report, meets the faculty, students and parents, visits classrooms and prepares its report and recommendations for the school.  

 

Where does Monte Vista currently stand in this process?   Monte Vista completed its sixth and final year of our current self-study.  In January of 2018, Monte Vista submitted its self-study report which was accepted by WASC. In the Spring of 2018, Monte Vista hosted the WASC accreditation team.  After an extensive review of our report and evidence, visitations to nearly all of our classrooms, and interviews with representatives of all of our stakeholder groups, the committee recommended a full 6-year accreditation with a three-year progress report with a mid-cycle one day visit. You can find the committee’s full report and our accreditation letter on the WASC website above this summary.

 

We are not finished, however.  The WASC process is an ongoing practice of self-reflection and growth.  During the next three years, Monte Vista will address the critical areas for follow-up through the implementation of our schoolwide action plan and continue to improve student achievement relative to the schoolwide learner outcomes and the academic standards. 

 

Monte Vista's Vision for Learning  Monte Vista believes that meaningful education is a shared responsibility involving students, staff, family and community.  We value a safe, inclusive, fulfilling, and diverse environment in which students are challenged to achieve their highest potential as ethical, resilient, and engaged citizens.
