WASC Focus Groups in Progress
Your Assistance Is VITAL!
Mission Hills High School needs your input for the 2015 WASC Self Study!  MHHS is currently in the midst of a massive self-study exercise to assess what they currently do as a school and examine opportunities to better serve our students. The most effective tool for this process is the use of Focus Groups in which staff, students, and parents collaborate on creating a plan for school improvement. 
Three out of four Focus Groups remain.  The school needs 15-20 parents to participate in each group. Parents will work alongside teachers, administrators, counselors, support staff, and students to help create a school-wide action plan which will help the school receive accreditation from WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges). Staff and students have already begun working on the 2 year self-study.  But, parent participation is CRITICAL to the process. There are five different topics parents can choose from: Leadership & Organization, Instruction, Assessment & Accountability, Curriculum, and Culture & Climate.
Focus Group Meetings are scheduled for Sept 23, Oct. 28, Dec. 9, and Feb 17. The meetings will be from 7:30am- 8:30am in designated classrooms.
If you have any questions about the WASC Self Study process, please contact Josh Way at 760.290.2722 or email, but first click on the button below for more details and be a part of this very important and critical process.
