Innovations International Charter School of Las Vegas, Nevada, is just one of several examples of the type of suspicious entities with questionable standards and practices that are typically associated with Northwest Association of Accredited Schools, Inc.
On May 4th, 2010, less than 60 days after the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office REFUSED the corrupt efforts of is parent accrediting agency to register the NAAS label, this apparently mismanaged and/or reckless entity placed a half-page ad in the Las Vegas Review Journal featuring the famous NAAS logo although substantial evidence was in the public domain that verified the fact that the school WAS NOT 'NAAS' accredited, and had no legal basis to molest, interfere with, or infringe upon the NAAS mark.
The Las Vegas Review Journal newspaper, which has a history of questionable editorial standards and journalism ethics, accepted the corrupt advertising claim, or placed the ad for free (which is doubtful). Whereas similar attempts by an NAAS agent to place an ad in the same newspaper for an ad that featured a claim of endorsement by the "Las Vegas Review Journal" was not accepted (of course).
This evidence supports claims made by this Publisher that many schools, school districts, and entities that claim accreditation by Northwest Association of Accredited Schools, are who are collective members of this organization, are so lacking in ethics, morals, and integrity, that this Publisher is compelled to denounce these 'NAAS' accreditation scams.
In order for these entites and persons to respect U.S. federal laws, these persons apparently have to be legally forced, shackled, tasered, or arrested. Business ethics, and integrity is a trait that does not appear to exist for many schools and entities that claim accreditation by Northwest Association of Accredited Schools. This opinion is strongly supported by the actions and conduct by state education departments, and collective members, connected to Northwest Association of Accredited Schools.FOR THE OFFICIAL RECORD:
Innovations International Charter Schools of Las Vegas, Nevada, DOES NOT meet legitimate NAAS accreditation standards approved by National Academy of American Scholars(NAAS); and, its use of the NAAS logo is a violation of the intellectual property rights of National Academy of American Scholars, etc.
REPORTS TO THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY, EMPLOYMENT CENTERS, AND TO ALL U.S.A. COLLEGES, AND UNIVERSITIES, ETC:
The U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security, college, universities, and employment centers, and numerous federal agencies have been notified of persons claiming 'NAAS' accreditation status, as well as the employees of such schools, as well as their paying clients .
If the names of offending persons are in a Table of Unaccredited 'NAAS' schools, these schools have not been properly licensed to use the NAAS label. Only paying schools may use the NAAS label in commerce. Depending upon your opinion, unlicensed persons and entities using the NAAS label without permission may be viewed and treated as disreputable.
Parents that anticipate sending monies or funds to phony 'NAAS' schools risk legal action, and severe embarrassment. Furthermore,the legitimate NAAS rejects and disclaims any and all associations, implied, or real, with the employees, students, and teachers associated with any school that has not secured an NAAS Provisional License.
We encourage ALL falsely labeled 'NAAS' schools, and collective members of Northwest Association of Accredited Schools, to come clean, and respect U.S. federal laws, and remit fees for past illegitimate use of the NAAS label. This act can be accomplished with a single click by completing eNAAS EAS/N2 Form 0089.
Any entity that seeks to use the NAAS label in commerce is required to first seek approval and proper licensing. As of today's date, Innovations International Charter Schools has not paid that fee. If and when the school does so, this report may be updated accordingly.
NAAS DEIA California affiliates have been assigned to investigate suspicious and illegal 'NAAS' Diploma Mills, and schools boasting of 'NAAS' Accreditation claims.
Affected parents and students attending or who reside in specified zipcodes may be sent notices reminding the same that acceptance of funds from illegal or unlicensed 'NAAS' schools will be challenged.
