The Regional Occupational Program for the San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools recently received a six-year accreditation—the highest possible—from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
"This really is great news. It's kind of like a Good Housekeeping seal of approval for our programs and instruction," said Kit Alvarez, administrator of the County Schools ROP. "Our six-year WASC accreditation shows that we are a quality agency with quality programs and that we are operating in a sound structure."
The accreditation process takes a look at student work and performance data, as well as interviews and input with students, CTE Coordinators, parents, instructors, and counselors in relation to quality criteria indicators.
