NAACP on School Probation Issue

The Savannah-Chartham Board of Education's problems are making waves with the NAACP. This afternoon, NAACP president Dr. Prince Jackson said certain members of the school board need to lose their egos in reference to the investigation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, or SACS.

He urges parents and community members to stay on top of what their school board members do so they don't lose accreditation for all Chatham County schools.

"We have a lot of options open to us," he said. "After all, these are elected people, all these people are elected and the same way they're elected they can be recalled."

If you'd like to know who represents your school child's school, refer to the list below.

SACS will hand down a final decision probation for Chatham County schools on Monday.
