Western Association of Schools and Colleges
The ACS WASC/HIDOE partnership provides a coordinated accreditation system integral to the school improvement process for ALL Hawaii DOE Public Schools K-12. The ACS WASC/HIDOE process is directly aligned with the HIDOE State Strategic Plan and the corresponding Academic Plans of the schools. The ACS WASC/HIDOE accreditation process systematizes and standardizes the ongoing evaluation of a school program and streamlines planning and reporting. The Focus on Learning: Joint ACS WASC/HIDOE Focus on Learning Process Guide facilitates a school’s in-depth look at what currently exists and what needs to be improved in relation to student learning and the school’s program. Through the process the schools evaluate progress in addressing the six priority strategies of the Hawaii State Strategic Plan. These are: the Academic Review Team, Common Core State Standards, Educator Effectiveness Systems; Formative Instruction/Data Teams; Induction and Mentoring; and the Comprehensive Student Support System.
Keaukaha Elementary was fully accredited in 2019.
