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.
