The Birmingham, Ala., school district is going to pay a crisis-management company $35,000 to help navigate the school accreditation process.

The district was placed on probation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools in July and given six months to address governance and leadership issues.

District officials have said infighting among board members and the superintendent puts the district at risk of losing accreditation, which could diminish the value of diplomas.

Officials from the company, Skye Connect, said they will give the school board a progress report, with a final appraisal in mid-February.
