WASC Visit Information

DSIS Received Six Year WASC Accreditation!

I am pleased to announce that through the hard work of the DSIS staff, parents and students, the Western Area School College Association has granted DSIS a six year accreditation.  Thank you to everyone for your hard work and for making DSIS an awesome school!

DSIS is accredited through the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).  The accreditation process includes schools completing self-studies at specific time intervals in order to retain accreditation.  This year, DSIS is at the six year mark and will be undergoing a review from a visiting WASC committee in April. 


To support the upcoming visit, DSIS staff have been busy completing the self-study and compiling many different sources of information about our school.  We appreciate the help that parents/guardians and students gave us in the fall by completing the surveys and giving us your opinion and thoughts about our school.   


In April parents/guardians and students will be invited to a special meeting with the Visiting WASC Accreditation Team.  At that meeting parents/guardians and students will have the opportunity to share with the team just why they feel DSIS merits continued accreditation and how the steps in the action plan speak to their needs.  The Team will be evaluating whether or not the parent community has been given the opportunity to shape the future of the school.


If you are interested in serving on the parent/guardian or student focus group please let Cindy Martell know as soon as possible.  More details about the WASC visit will be sent out as information becomes available.
