PC Lujan informed its losing accreditation

Posted: Updated:

Guam - PC Lujan Elementary School received preliminary information that it will be losing its accreditation. Principal Jeanette Burch says the school had a six-year accreditation, but due to the lack of resources and the financial challenges plaguing the school, a recent visit from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges was not favorable.

A WASC team was on island back in April. Burch says at the time of the visit, they were in the middle of transitioning from the Direct Instruction teaching format to addressing content standards. She says because of the lack of resources, they've been short with manpower and even textbooks. She says accreditation is not required under the Department of Education's District Action Plan.
