Two weeks after LaSalle’s on-site peer review regarding reaccreditation, LaSalle Executive Director Bill Wolff received a letter from Richard Klarsburg, president and chief executive officer of The Council on Accreditation (COA), informing him that the agency’s reaccreditation application had been expedited.
Klarsburg said that LaSalle’s reaccreditation was expedited through COA’s Pre-Commission Review Report (PCR) process as a result of not receiving any out of compliance ratings in any of the fundamental practice standards. He encouraged Wolff to share this wonderful accomplishment with his staff, board of trustees, funders, regulatory bodies and all of LaSalle’s stakeholders.
In four weeks, we will be receiving the formal reaccreditation notification letter, Final Accreditation Report, and an accreditation plaque. It will be on display in an accessible public space where the entire LaSalle community can easily take notice and feel confident and proud to be part of LaSalle School.
COA’s program of quality improvement is designed to identify providers that have met high performance standards and have made a commitment to their stakeholders to deliver the very best quality services. COA is proud to recognize LaSalle School as one of these outstanding providers, and wishes us the very best in our mission and continuing work with the children and families we serve.
