!!! WASC ACCREDITATION ACCOLADES !!!
Nea celebrates accreditation renewal from the Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), for a full six-year term, extending its accreditation through June of 2021.
The WASC Visiting Committee’s recommendation for accreditation of this duration is “a testament to the strength of Nea's leadership, the commitment to a rigorous plan of ongoing improvement, and the integrity of the self-study process and resultant report.”
WASC provides evaluation of schools to ensure educational programs meet the highest standards. Accreditation criteria are research-based standards developed by a collective of practicing educational leaders and theorists. The criteria emphasize factors that produce effective schools, including: curriculum, instructional strategies, assessment, institutional effectiveness and clear purpose.
