Accreditation at risk in Haralson County (Ga.) district

Nov. 17, 2008
4,000-student district has 5 months to make improvements
A west Georgia school district has five months to make improvements or face losing accreditation. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools has voted to place the Haralson County schools on probation. Haralson County, which has 4,000 students, is about 50 miles west of Atlanta on the Alabama border. SACS cited Haralson for problems similar to the issues that led to Clayton County Schools’ accreditation loss. On Sept. 1, Clayton, which has 50,000 students, became the nation’s first district to lose accreditation in nearly 40 years.To read The Atlanta Journal-Constitution article, click here.
