After spending part of this week reviewing Pickens school operations as part of a regularly scheduled evaluation, the SACS review team is recommending that Pickens schools be accredited this afternoon. The review team is meeting with the school board in a called meeting.
Overall, the review they presented to the board was very positive. The accreditation will be official when the SACS commission votes in June.
It is very important that shools maintain an accredited status for student scholarships and college acceptance of student work. Going into the process, Superintendent Lula Mae Perry expressed confidence that they would meet accreditation requirements, but wanted to be sure the schools look as good as possible.
