Troubled Ga. School District Improving, Accreditor Says
Two years after it was stripped of its accreditation, the Clayton County, Ga., school district remains on probation with a national accrediting agency, but it has made progress on a list of benchmarks.
According to a report from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, the district's once-troubled school board has improved but still has work to do. The 50,000-student district lost its accreditation in 2008 because of a squabbling, ineffective school board, which has been replaced.
The district's accreditation was restored on a provisional basis last year. The report notes that the board still needs to remove outside influences and complete a comprehensive review of school board policies.
School Superintendent Edward Heatley said he would not be satisfied until the district is off probation permanently.
