Three schools in the Vallejo City Unified School District (VCUSD) earned six-year accreditation status this week –Vallejo Adult School at Al Berenguer Educational Center, as well as Jesse Bethel and Vallejo High Schools. The trio received the status from the Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
The three schools went through a process that included conducting an in-depth self-study, hosting a visit by fellow educators, and engaging all stakeholders in a follow-up process of implementing, monitoring, and refining the resulting schoolwide action plan.
“The six-year accreditation of three of our schools is a testament to our staff and faculty’s continuous work,” Vallejo City Unified School District Superintendent William Spalding said in a news release. “The Vallejo Adult School has remained a stellar resource to Vallejo’s adult community and a pride point of our District. We know there is still work to be done at our high schools to improve, but this is an endorsement of our improvement efforts underway in our schools.”
