The district's academic improvement continues. All six comprehensive high schools of the Long Beach Unified School District and the district's continuation high school recently received full six-year accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. WASC teams recently visited the schools to observe how well they serve students.
Poly and Wilson high schools received a clear term accreditation. They are only required to submit a written progress report in three years. Cabrillo, Jordan, Lakewood, Millikan and Reid high schools received six-year term accreditation, meaning they will each receive a two-day revisit in three years.
"We're extremely pleased that all schools got the full six," said H.J. Green, assistant superintendent for high schools. "It's really a reflection of the hard work of teachers, parents and administrators collaborating in putting together action plans for school improvement."
