Dear St. Andrew parent:
Welcome to the online WCEA/WASC parent survey.
For those of you not familiar with the process of Catholic elementary school accreditation in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, the Western Catholic Education Association (WCEA) in conjunction with the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) are the organizations that certify our school. WCEA/WASC is an association that ensures that schools (Catholic, public, charter) meet various standards in aspects of running a school.
The process is a six-year cycle of:
- Gathering school data,
- Clarifying of what students should know, understand and be able to do,
- Analyzing student performances,
- Examining the Catholic identity, academic, social, and personal program of the school,
- Identifying critical areas of need,
- Creating a school-wide action plan
A WCEA/WASC Accreditation Team will visit us next year and this survey is an important part of our preparation and reporting. As part of our commitment to this ongoing process we are inviting parent to participate in a parent survey. It will be electronically collated and the results will be incorporated into the WCEA/WASC study.

Please plan to complete this survey in one sitting. It will take about 15 minutes. All responses will remain confidential. Thank you for taking the time to answer this carefully and honestly. Your comments are very important to us.
