School Board Working to Get Off "Watch" Status

Are you worried about the schools? Savannah-Chatham's under the microscope for a lot of reasons, including some of their own rules. So today the board of education got together to review policies and make sure they meet state standards.

"It's going to help the school system run smoother," said District 4 board member Greg Sapp. "The board will be more cohesive and will hopefully help us become a better entity for the school system."

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools has the system on "watch" status after past problems. The board still has to approve today's changes as part of the process to improve the system's ranking.
