Nine educators from around the southeast arrived in town on Sunday to begin their evaluation of the bay district school system. The team from the southern association of colleges and schools, also known as sacs, reviewed bay district schools for their 5-year accreditation.

At Wednesday’s school board meeting they presented their findings, including the district's strengths and weaknesses. The team commended the district for their strong communication among all of the stakeholders in the schools, including teachers, employees, parents and students. They also acknowledged bay's increase in rank in the state and higher graduation rates from the last accreditation.

Updating information databases was one of the recommendations.

These accreditations take place every five years, so educators never get to stop working on improvements.

"It's an ongoing process. Part of being accredited is the knowledge that we're going to continue to monitor what we do and we're already pretty good at that in Bay District. We've got some direction now," said John Cannon, Bay District's Student Achievement Program Specialist.

Bay district has two years to submit an accreditation progress report addressing the team's recommendations.
