The Commission on Lutheran Schools has partnered with Pearson Education School Systems to provide WELS schools access to PowerSchool, an innovative student information system. PowerSchool starts with the student in the center and is designed to ensure administrators, teachers, students, and parents get real-time, web-based access to the student information they need to work as a team and help every child succeed.

In 2003, the Commission on Lutheran Schools resolved to establish a school accreditation process as a means of improving the educational quality and effectiveness of Lutheran schools and their ministry. WELS School Accreditation (WELSSA) is the very tool that has been developed to assist schools with the evaluating process based on Scripture and on sound educational principles.


The commission guides and assists congregations in advancing the gospel of Jesus by providing resources, training, and personal assistance for starting and strengthening WELS schools.
