Dear Rex & Margaret Fortune Early College High School Families,
We are pleased to announce that the Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges (ACS WASC) Commissioners have determined that “Fortune School meets the ACS WASC criteria for accreditation. It was the decision of the Commission to grant Fortune School Initial Accreditation Status through June 30, 2022.”
Prior to the end of this initial accreditation period, Rex & Margaret Fortune Early College High School (RMFECHS) must complete a self-study assessment and submit a self-study report. An ACS WASC Visiting Committee will conduct a site visit to review the school’s self-study findings and supporting evidence, conduct classroom observations, and dialogue with all stakeholders. The committee will evaluate the school’s programs and operations and the impact on student learning.
The approval of initial accreditation entitles RMFECHS to use the following phrase on transcripts or in school advertising: “Accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges”. Transcripts of students who are graduating or transferring from grades covered by the accreditation may be stamped or embossed with the ACS WASC accredited seal.
We have much to be proud of and we are excited about what this means for our scholars. We appreciate your support throughout this important process. Stay tuned for updates as our self-study work gets underway.
