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.

NAAS frowns upon the practice of online advertising by attorneys, and considers the practice to be immoral. Online advertising by attorneys is a red-flag for attorney corruption, and dishonesty. In fact, the greater the online advertising presence then the greater the probabilty the attorney or law firm will be dishonest, and unethical. NAAS DEIA agents have collected information that suggests that attorneys who advertise online are most likely less ethical than their counterparts who do not.
The profession of online attorneys is not much different than used-car salesmen, and the profession of trademark attorneys that adverise online is comparable to the automobile repair industry. As a consumer, client, or potential client, you will face deceit, dishonesty, or incorrect legal advice. for example, consider attorneys or law firms that have purchased an advertising link or sponsored ad on any search engine, including Google, Yahoo, YouTube, or MSN, for the purposes of soliciting business for attorney services. The solicitations range from soliciting business for a trademark application, settling a trademark dispute, or soliting income in exchange for the filing of any document(s) with the U.S. Trademark Office, then your firm may be subject to an NAAS Attorney Review Media report.
NAAS has published a new NAAS media report as part of a collection of NAAS Media reports that relate to a wider media campaign. National Academy of American Scholars (NAAS), its attorneys, investigators, NAAS DEIA agents, are mounting an aggressive multi-media campaign to investigate and prosecute groups and persons who claim or imply affiliation, approval by, and/or accreditation by National Academy of American Scholars (NAAS). The new NAAS media report is aimed at corrupt attorneys, who mistakenly believe, that their professional status is immune from federal laws, and immune from NAAS Media Reports.
If you are an attorney, or employed at a law firm, and you represent a client who is perceived to be violating the intellectual property rights of National Academy of American Scholars, or who is in violation of NAAS EAS/N2 Rules, or you represent a client has chosen to engage National Academy of American Scholars (NAAS) then please be advised that your firm, and each of its employees, process servers, etc., will be subject to NAAS EAS/N2 Rules.
We encourage our readers to read our new report, and report attorney violations to this Publisher. All attorneys who write or communicate to NAAS or any agents, assignees, or affiliates related thereto, and who represent clients other than NAAS, or its agents or affilites, may be subject to an NAAS Attorney Review report.
There is no legal paperwork or document that a U.S. attorney can prepare that will infringe upon or impede the rights guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution. Attorneys that voluntarily choose to engage the sponsor of National Academy of American Scholars, or NAAS products and services, do so knowing that the rules of engagement are NAAS EAS/N2 Rules.
The NAAS.ORG website is based upon and entirely operated pursuant to published NAAS EAS/N2 Rules. We do not operate based upon some imaginary or hastily created rule, procedure, or demand authored by some U.S. attorney that is designed to benefit his/her client(s), or competitors to NAAS products, and services; such demands constitute moral turpitude and may be reported to the prosecuting State Bar.

National Academy of American Scholars (NAAS), its attorneys, investigators, NAAS DEIA agents, are mounting an aggressive world-wide multi-media campaign to investigate and prosecute groups and persons who claim or imply affiliation, approval by, and/or accreditation by National Academy of American Scholars (NAAS). We are investigating the fraudulent misuse of the world famous 'NAAS' mark, counterfeiting of the famed 'NAAS' logo, and global piracy of 'NAAS' intellectual property.
We are investigating attorneys who aid, assist, abet, or provide material support to criminals in furtherance of violating U.S. federal laws, and who accept monies from blatant trademark infringers.
NAAS has teamed up with the global anti-piracy STOP initiative developed by the U.S. Patent & Trademark office, and other agencies that combat intellectual property theft.
We are pursuing the criminal prosecution of trademark infringers, the manufacturers of fake 'NAAS' logos, the manufacturers of counterfeit 'NAAS' t-shirts, companies and organizations that illegally use the 'NAAS' mark on their websites, and their co-conspirators.
Non-profit organizations, donors, web hosting companies, universities, data repository companies, and advertisers that sponsor, fund, or provide material support to offensive trademark infringers are also targets of scrutiny, and possible litigation.
The choice is simple: If you do not have an official NAAS License, cease and desist your use of the 'NAAS' mark or remove ALL references of the mark from your literature and website.
We intend to track down, locate, identify, and prosecute each and every person(s), group(s), and agencies who violate U.S. federal laws with regard to matters concerning NAAS. There is no person or agency that will be spared scrutiny if they are perceived as violating the intellectual property rights of National Academy of American Scholars (NAAS).
The known principal organizations and persons currently under both criminal and civil investigation with respect to matters concerning this topic are:

This group is associated with Northwest Association of Accredited Schools. Collectively, they encourage their respective State commitees, sub-groups, employees, and illegally-named ‘NAAS’ accredited schools to engage in the same conduct that itself is under investigation for.
Many of the these persons and organizations have direct ties to National Association of Financial-Aid Administrators (NASFAA) or its counterpart National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC). NAAS Media Reports detail that these organization are typically a base or breeding ground for financial-aid criminals, student-loan fraudsters, and loan-steering. Both of these organizations have been repeated subjects of past NAAS NEWS Media reports.
As of the date of this posting, the groups named above appear to be the most blatant, offensive, deceitiful, and persistent violators and infringers of the 'NAAS' mark. None of there persons have been qualified or authorized to use the world-famous 'NAAS' mark in commerce. Their use of the 'NAAS' mark is illegal.
Honest and ethical persons need merely to be reminded of the need to follow the law, and they will comply; whereas, criminals need to be handcuffed, publicly embarrassed, and/or ordered by a court of law to comply with the same instructions

As many of you may know, The College Board is a member of NASFAA. NASFAA is a non-profit organization that boasts memberships amongst hundreds of prestigious colleges and universities. Though a concerted effort and deliberate colloboration, for many years each of the member schools and universities of NASFAA have required that prospective students take an SAT and/or ACT test to allegedly judge their propects for success at an institution of hiring learning.
During this time period, The College Board pocketed an enormous amount of money, and its officers became quite wealthy.
As a smoke screen, and a possible eye at limiting access to competing dollars, The College Board hooked up with NASFAA, and several other members of NASFAA, in a varierty of self-serving ventures. Eventually, the attorney generals of several states began sniffing for clues. Soon, the Student loan scandal became public.
Within the past few years, as more and more Americans and schools have debugged this pay-for-nothing scheme, more schools have opted to make the SAT an option rather than a reqirement.
