State Board to Review SLPS Accreditation in October

The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has received a request for accreditation review from the Special Administrative Board of the St. Louis Public School District. The Department plans to bring this request to the State Board of Education at its meeting on October 16, 2012.

“We will be taking time to consider the District’s request in the next few weeks before making a recommendation to the Board,” said Commissioner Chris L. Nicastro. “The Board has the final authority on accreditation classification determinations.”

The Department is currently reviewing the request and the school data. The Special Administrative Board was put in place upon the District’s loss of accreditation in 2007.
