SACS Task Force Wants Compliance Timeline

The SACS advisory board met this afternoon to discuss the progress of the Savannah-Chatham County school board. After the system was put on probation, the school board organized the committee of community leaders to help get them back on track.

So far, the committee is pleased with what's being done, but members say it's time to hire a new superintendent and it's time to get the community more involved.

"The one thing we continue to ask for and everyone in the community needs is a timeline and a bullet point approach of what we're going to do to get off probation," said task force member Anne Crowder.

SACS officials will be back in Savannah in April to check on the school board's progress.
