The Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) accreditation process is called Focus on Learning. The goal of this process is to evaluate a school’s impact on student learning, as well as the effectiveness of the school’s programs and its operation. In 2009, WASC awarded Avalon School with a six-year accreditation with a Midterm Review after three years. The 2009 report identified three Critical Areas for Follow-up that we have been addressing during the past three years. On March 26, 2012, a two-person team visited Avalon and looked at our progress. We were excited to share our progress with them and look forward to sharing the visiting committee’s report with you soon.
La Asociación de Escuelas y Colegios (WASC) se llama “foco en el aprendizaje.” El objetivo de este proceso es evaluar el impacto de una escuela de aprendizaje, así como la eficacia de los programas de la escuela y su funcionamiento. En 2009, WASC otorgó Avalon con una acreditación de seis años con un reviso de mitad de período después de tres años. El informe de 2009 identificó tres áreas críticas para el seguimiento que nos hemos estado ocupando durante los últimos tres años. El 26 de marzo de 2012, un equipo de dos personas visitará Avalon y miraran nuestro progreso. Estamos muy contentos de compartir nuestro progreso con ellos y deseando compartir el informe de la Comisión visitante con usted pronto.
Avalon teachers, counselors, officer personnel, and administrators communicate with students and their families through traditional methods and newly adopted technologies. The most recent communication tool available to our staff is School Loop. School Loop is a web-based site that offers 6th through 12th grade students and their families a wide range of information about the school and their individual student. Students, parents, and guardians may obtain Avalon Schools School Loop accounts, and not only view news and updates about the school, but also peruse their own child’s class and homework assignments, test grades, and overall academic standing. School Loop can be used to reach teachers, counselors, and administrators by e-mail. Families may obtain assistance to sign onto School Loop at Back to School, or by individual appointment through their student’s counselor.
The school website is also a School Loop product.
School Messenger, a telephone based communication system, offers teachers, counselors, office staff, and administrators a tool to relate information about individual students or school-wide news to families in their native language. Teachers have access to a menu of pre-recorded messages concerning classroom assignments, grades, behaviors, and activities, that they can send to family phones with the touch of a couple letters on the keyboard.
Administrators and office personnel possess the ability to send notifications to families of targeted groups of students or the entire school population. Attendance calls arrive on family phones automatically on the day a student is absent from one or more class period. The school receives a list of unsuccessful calls every time a message is sent, improving our ability to update phone numbers for our students’ families.
