Welcome to the WASC Accrediting Commission for Schools website. We hope you find the website to be helpful and informative.
WASC values accreditation as a process designed to strengthen schools in the delivery of quality educational programs. Accreditation is important to schools as it impacts studentsí access to colleges and universities and career opportunities in a variety of ways. An effective WASC self-study review is a powerful tool for schools to improve the quality of education and more effectively serve staff and students.
To our many WASC volunteers, we express our deepest gratitude for the many comments and suggestions that have helped us make this website more accessible and relevant to both schools and WASC volunteers alike. WASC is proud of the quality of support we can provide both electronically and in person.
Please use our website for your WASC needs; we hope to answer all your questions and help you utilize the WASC protocols to provide the highest level of quality education for students. We are also available in the Burlingame and Temecula offices should you need immediate assistance with any aspect of the accreditation process. Again, thank you for your support and ongoing volunteer service in this important and noble work.
David Brown, Executive Director
