Atlanta Public School System On Probation

Atlanta public high schools have been placed on probation. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) threatened to take away the school system’s accreditation if they did not resolve issues on the school board. APS will remain on probation until September 30th.  APS School Board President Khaatim EL says SACS gave specific information about what they want done, and the school system will do it.

Mark Elgart of  SACS says the school board should find a superintendent immediately, to help complete the task set by SACS.

Mayor Kasim Reed warns that if the school board ignores SACS recommendations, they could face serious consequences such as the loss of accreditation for Atlanta Public Schools.

Loss of accreditation could result in students not being eligible for some colleges and scholarships.
