(Updated) Clayton County Schools regain provisional accreditation

For nearly a year, students and teachers have been in limbo about status

Good news for the beleaguered school system. From WSB:

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) restored accreditation to the Clayton County School District Friday.

But the district is still on a two-year probation.

SACS had yanked the 50,000-student district's accreditation, blaming much of the system's woes on a "dysfunctional" and "fatally flawed" school board.
