Jamie Anaforian, teacher, Tokay High School

“Many people believe that we can just do what we want and carry on with ‘business as usual,’ and that is not the case. We are held to standards set by the California Department of Education and WASC to be sure that we are providing a legitimate and realistic education.”

David Brown, director, Western Association of Schools and Colleges

“We are not the instruction police. We care more about whether schools are helping children and doing what is right.”

Bonnie Cassel, trustee, Lodi Unified School District

“As a board member, now I place a lot on those studies to understand what schools are doing. It’s an honest appraisal.”

Meanwhile, Lodi High School is being asked to increase academic opportunities for its Latino students, who constituted about a third of the student body in 2010.

These are among the recommendations made by a group known as the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, whose representatives regularly walk the halls of Lodi-area schools.
