California Public and Charter Schools

Public comprehensive, charter, and alternative schools in California use the ACS WASC/California Department of Education (CDE) joint accreditation process. ACS WASC accreditation is an ongoing six-year cycle of quality whereby schools demonstrate the capacity, commitment, and competence to support high-quality student learning and ongoing school improvement.

The ACS WASC/CDE Focus on Learning protocol guides schools into an ongoing improvement process that includes implementation, assessment, and refinement of the schoolwide action plan on an annual basis. Appropriate reports and reviews throughout the six-year cycle of accreditation support this process.

Public comprehensive, charter, and alternative schools will find that the ACS WASC/CDE Focus on Learning process can serve as the basis for the Single Plan for Student Achievement.
