Please accept this letter as an invitation to participate in the exciting and deeply meaningful process Carlmont is currently undertaking. Our school is engaged in a dynamic self-study that will culminate in a formal review by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). This review is critical to our academic accreditation and your participation is a crucial and necessary component to our success.
Our self-study involves examining the progress of, and services provided to, all of our students. It addresses parent participation in all facets of academic and extracurricular activities. We have formed study teams that are examining data that include test results as well as parents, student, and staff surveys. We will be analyzing performance, attendance, and the overall well-being of our entire student body.
We seek your ideas, your input, and your direction as we strive to grow and enhance the excellence of Carlmont High School. Once again, your involvement is key to our success as a learning community.
Please join us in this exciting rewarding endeavor.
