WASC, or the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, is an independent body that accredits all high schools and colleges in California and the Western United States. CHS is on a six-year accreditation cycle, with our accreditation scheduled for renewal in the spring of 2019.
Over the past year, CHS has prepared for this accreditation by conducting an extensive self-study of all aspects of our school program, including school governance, curriculum, instruction, and assessment, as well as school culture and student support. This process has been inclusive of all stakeholder groups, including faculty, classified staff, administrators, parents, and students.
The next step in our process is to create a 6-year action plan for improvement, based on our student-community profile and the findings of our self-study. The goals and action items we determine will also be aligned with our site, district, and LCAP goals.
We welcome your input into this important process! We will be holding a WASC Parent Meeting on Thursday, October 25 from 5:30 - 6:15 in the CHS Library, just prior to the choir concert. Refreshments will be served.
If you are unable to attend the meeting, another option for sharing your perspective is to respond to this Parent Input Form by Friday, October 26.
If you have further questions, please contact WASC coordinator, Barbara Steinberg, at email@example.com.
Thanks for your continued support and involvement!

Dear Parents and CUSD employees: A Chicago colleague asked recently, “What is the name of your new school district?” “Carmel Unified,” I responded. “Unified? ” she inquired as though she had misheard. I quickly responded, “Yes, in Chicago we would call it a Unit District. It serves students in grades K-12. Actually we also have a preschool program here, so it’s actually pre-K to grade 12, but it’s about the same thing as a unit district.”
