SACS Task Force Recommends Progress Report

More recommendations are being made to get the Savannah-Chatham County school system off probation. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools--or SACS--task force committee met again this afternoon.

The group, made up of prominent community leaders, was asked by school board president Hugh Golson to come up with ways to help get the system back on track. Right now, they are suggesting that the school board make a list to show SACS officials what they've accomplished.

"I think that this group believes that it needs to go and be put into place, so that when SACS comes in for a mid-term visit, they'll know what's been done and what's going to be done, they'll have something to measure by," said committee member Anne Crowder.

Representatives from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools will be back in April to see if the school board has made any progress.
