SACS team visiting APS

By Veronica Waters

Atlanta, GA None —

The Atlanta Public Schools district was placed on probation six months ago by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.  WSB's Jon Lewis reports now, a team from the accrediting agency is meeting with members of the school board.

SACS is trying to find out what is being done "when it comes to the accreditation issues that SACS had laid out for the board--the six required items that they were required to do back more than six months ago," says APS spokesman Keith Bromery.

The interviews will take place today and Tuesday.  They will also meet with school administrators.

The SACS team is made up of principals and school superintendents.  The mid-year review is to evaluate how far the district has advanced in meeting the requirements for full accreditation and to confirm that the reports that the system has been sending to SACS are accurate.

Meanwhile, the system has begun turning over computer hard drives to Fulton County prosecutors looking into the CRCT cheating scandal.
