Education Protection Account (EPA)

The Education Protection Account (EPA), created as a result of Proposition 30 in November 2012, requires that California Montessori Project post the amount of funds received and spent from that account.  For the 2012-2013, 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 fiscal years, CMP used these funds for teacher salaries and benefits.  Please see the links below for amounts received broken out by Charter.

AMS School Accreditation

This past May, California Montessori Project’s long-time quest for dual accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and the American Montessori Society (AMS), culminated with an on-site visitation of a team of AMS leaders from Hawaii to New York and Florida.   School accreditation is a rigorous process that examines every aspect of a school including governance, curriculum, fiscal and personnel policies, facilities, health and safety practices, teacher preparation and learner outcomes.  This process includes the participation of the school community including students, families, teachers, administration and governing board members.   AMS school accreditation affirms that a school meets a high standard of excellence recognized by educators and Montessorians.   In June, CMP was notified that it had met all AMS School Accreditation Standards and Criteria and was awarded AMS school accreditation.   We are very pleased to have earned this important school recognition and thankful to all those who participated in this process.   Click on the link below to access the AMS School Accreditation Report.

And, thanks to all of the awesome teachers, school leaders, office administrators, parents, students and school board members for their involvement in the Accreditation process.
