GREAT NEWS FROM SACS.
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 a Delegation of DeKalb County School Board Members and DeKalb Public School System Staff, met with Mark Elgart, President/CEO of Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, SACS. I was one of the DeKalb School Board Members who attended the Meeting.
Mr. Elgart informed the Delegation that SACS "was not" investigating DeKalb School Board Members nor DeKalb Public School System. Mr. Elgart advised the Delegation to not compare DeKalb School Board Members nor DeKalb Public School System with Clayton County, as our circumstances are totally different.
Mr. Elgart stated that SACS' primary Goal is to assist School Boards and School Systems with improvement in education.
Mr. Elgart also stated that SACS is available to assist DeKalb School Board, upon our request.
Needless to say, I was ecstatic to hear these statements directly from Mr. Elgart. I hope that you are also. Please “share” this information with other interested persons.
If I can provide additional information, please let me know.
Thank you for very much for your support of our Students and Schools.
