Georgia's third-largest district no longer faces an imminent threat of accreditation loss, after a tumultuous few years that included the rare step of the governor removing a majority of the school board.

Officials with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools announced last week that the DeKalb County district is no longer on probation. The sprawling metro Atlanta district serves nearly 100,000 students, with about 14,000 employees.

The accrediting association put the district on probation in December 2012, citing problems with board governance and fiscal mismanagement.
