Accrediting commission removes California's Diablo Valley College from probation

Accreditors have removed Diablo Valley College from probation, nearly three years after they first warned the Pleasant Hill school it needed to improve quickly to avoid losing its accreditation.

In a letter released by the community college Wednesday, the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges said DVC had solved several problems, some of which were first noted by the commission nearly a decade ago.

The commission fully renewed DVC's accreditation, eliminating potential problems for students working toward a job-training certificate or planning to transfer to a four-year school.

The decision came two years after DVC was placed on "show-cause" status, the last step before a school loses its accreditation. The commission, which polices teaching, curriculum and student learning, is California's primary accreditor for community colleges.

College leaders worked hard to improve the school's problems, said Peter Garcia, DVC's interim president. Commissioners criticized a range of areas, from a lack of administrative efficiency to a failure to prove students were learning necessary skills.
