Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) - During the 2013-14 school year, the entire St. Philomene community worked collaboratively to complete a Self Study. This document is an analysis of student learning and programs at St. Philomene. This year, a Visiting Committee will spend three days (December 1-3) reviewing the Self Study document, visiting classrooms, talking with shareholders and providing feedback on our Action Plan during the accreditation process. The goal is to enhance our programs and continue to improve student learning. Please visit the office to read the full report.
WASC Accreditation Process - Ultimately, the accreditation process is all about fostering excellence in the elementary, secondary, adult, postsecondary and supplementary education programs. The process involves helping schools meaningfully create the highest quality learning experiences they can envision for all students. The purpose of ACS WASC's is to professionally support schools in creating a clear vision of what they desire their students to know and be able to do. Furthermore, the WASC process ensures that the school has systems in place that will help every child be successful.
Chromebook Laptops - Every student in grades 3rd-8th will continue to receive a Chromebook laptop. Students are able to take virtual field trips, submit assignments electronically, collaborate on projects, and become spiritually-grounded users of technology.
Common Core Standards - St. Philomene teachers will continue to utilize the newly adopted California Common Core Standards for English Language Arts and Math.
