Channel 12 is transitioning from an analog broadcast to a digital broadcast in order to improve quality for viewers. Cable America customers who have a television with a digital TV tuner will need to perform a re-scan of their channels.
The digital version of Channel 12 will appear on numerical channel 82.9. Cable subscribers using a digital converter box will still see Channel 12 programming on numerical channel 12. During this transition period, Channel 12 will still be available in an analog format but in the near future the analog broadcast of Channel 12 will no longer be available.
By re-scanning their televisions, viewers will continue to see coverage of Waynesville High School athletic events and important local government programming.
The Waynesville R-VI School District operates Channel 12 in cooperation with the City of Waynesville, City of Saint Robert, and with technical support provided by Cable America.
WCC Receives National Accreditation
Atlanta—The Commission of the Council on Occupational Education (COE) has granted accreditation to Waynesville Career Center. Announcement of the action was made by Mr. Al Salazar, Commission Chair, following the COE Commission Meeting of the Council on Occupational Education on June 12, 2015.
The award of accreditation status is based on an evaluation to demonstrate that the institution meets not only the commission’s standards of quality, but also the needs of the students, the community and employers. The commission’s evaluation process includes an extensive self-study by the institution and an intensive review by a visiting team of professional educators representing the commission’s member institutions from other states.
Waynesville Career Center began its self-study in July 2013 and underwent a team visit in March 2015. The visiting team chairperson was Arrita Summers.
The Council on Occupational Education, based in Atlanta, Ga., offers quality assurance services to postsecondary technical education providers across the nation. Organized as a non-profit corporation, the mission of the council is to assure quality and integrity in career and technical education. Services offered include institutional accreditation (recognized by the U.S. Department of Education), program quality reviews for states and technical education providers and informational services. Most of the council’s work is carried out by qualified professional volunteers who are experts in technical education.
Institutional membership in the council is voluntary, but can be achieved only by becoming accredited. The council’s current membership makes it unique. Members include postsecondary public technical institutes, specialized military and national defense schools, Job Corps Centers, private career schools, non-profit technical education providers, corporate and industry education units, and federal agency institutions. No other agency accredits and serves the diversity of organizations served by the council. There are more than 500 institutional members at the present time.
