Northern CA Accreditation Training: Castro Valley
September 26, 2017 9am-3pm
Redwood Christian School, 19300 Redwood Road, Castro Valley, CA
One of the activities that ACSI and WASC conduct jointly is the Accreditation Coordinators' Training. This workshop is targeted for the school coordinator of the self-study, the person given the responsibility of coordinating the entire process. Also invited is the school principal or other individual(s) most directly concerned.
If your school plans on going through an accreditation visit in the spring of 2017 or 2018, we strongly encourage your school to be represented at this training. This Accreditation Coordinators' Training will begin with an overview of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) . ACSI will then conduct a group training for discussion of the accreditation process, and the requirements which must be met in order to complete the self-study. Even if your school will not be going through a joint process, the information you receive will be most beneficial to you as you prepare for the upcoming committee visit.
Interested in Accreditation? Come hear more about how your school can become accredited with ACSI!
Please feel free to call the regional office 714.256.1287 if you have any questions.

Gratitude: it’s one of my favorite topics because it has such power to effect change in our hearts, in others, in our communities, and even in our schools.

It’s a question many Christian parents have asked: By having my kids attend a Christian school, am I nurturing them and equipping them for life in secular society, or am I potentially harming them by shielding them from it? Jay Ferguson, headmaster of Grace Community School (Tyler, Texas), addresses that question head-on in this issue. I hope you’ll consider his excellent points.
