WASC--This week ahead has Pinole Valley very excited. This Sunday, October 22, the Western Assocation of Schools and Credentialing is doing its re-visit of our campus. We received a six-year accreditation in 2014, but this is the mid-cycle review. What does all of that mean? The WASC folk will be interviewing everyone from classroom teachers to parents, to students to community members and asking the question--How are we doing? We are confident that they will like much of what they see, but we are still scrubbing from top to bottom and making sure our place looks its best. On Sunday, we'll be showing the visiting committee around and having a community forum (P.S. you're all invited) and then on Monday, the team will be visiting classrooms and talking to students and teachers (on their prep period). WASC gave us a list of things they wanted us to work on the last time they were here, and we anticipate they're have some new items this time too. They often want to know how we know how we measure success. And whether we have a vision moving forward. We are happy to have our guests and families here on campus at the same time, on Tuesday, WASC will meet with the District folk and then give us their preliminary report. Wish us well, or better yet, come by and be a part of our visit.
