AdvancED/SACS grants full accreditation to the Dougherty County School System
ALBANY, Ga. — The Dougherty County School System received good news this week when the district learns it had been granted full accreditation by AdvancED/SACS.
“The achievement of reaffirmation of our quality accreditation by AdvancED/SACS reflects the work of our people throughout the system.” said Vinson Davis, principal and member of the district accreditation leadership team. “It also speaks to our community stakeholders who participated in the self-study. This process centers on continuous improvement and we will work to make the next accreditation cycle even better than this one. The feedback from the external review team gives good direction for our future.”
A review team of education leaders from five states visited Albany last September for the purpose of reviewing the DCSS’s work to meet educational standards to retain accreditation with AdvancED/SACS.
