WASC accreditation is an important and validating schoolwide process that focuses on continuous school improvement. Our WASC accreditation status shows school stakeholders that MVA is a quality school, and that staff members are invested in improving school processes and practices to improve student achievement. The ongoing WASC process brings teachers and school leaders together to collaborate and discuss schoolwide achievements and growth and improvement areas.

MVA Schoolwide Action Plan - The action plan outlines the schoolwide goals, based on the "Critical Areas for Follow-Up," as identified by the WASC Visiting Committee. School staff members will work to implement and achieve these goals and action steps over the next few school years. We will review the action plan and discuss progress to-date each semester.

WASC Visiting Committee Volunteers

The WASC Commission is always looking for certificated school employees to serve as Visiting Committee members. Like all WASC-related activities, serving as part of a VC is a collaborative experience. You will work with other educators to review a school's progress and identify schoolwide strengths and areas for improvement. A WASC visit is a fantastic PD opportunity, where you'll learn a lot about the accreditation process. Plus, it's fun to see what goes on "behind the scenes."

Serving on a WASC VC for a self-study visit requires a three-and-a-half day commitment (Sunday afternoon through Wednesday afternoon). The school you are visiting will cover the cost of your hotel stay, mileage, and meals. In addition to the visit days, you'll spend some time pre-writing the VC report during the weeks leading up to the visit.

WASC will provide training, and the Visiting Committee Chairperson will guide you through every step of the process before and during the visit.

Please email Gillian if you are interested in serving on a Visiting Committee during the 2023-2024 school year.
