from Terry Nall
Dunwoody City Council Post 4 (District 1 At Large)
“Below is a link to an initiative underway in Dunwoody seeking permission from Supt Thurmond for our high school to pursue a single school accreditation as a dual accreditation alongside SACS district accreditation.
“If other high school communities have talked about requesting the same permission, now is the time to contact the Supt for that permission. For instance, I’ve heard indirectly that Lakeside High School is also interested in this strategy. I would expect other high school councils to be interested in this.
“My request was not just for Dunwoody High School, but was for any high school in DeKalb with a school council interested in a back-up accreditation. This back-up, single school accreditation is to protect our students for college admission purposes in the event of the unthinkable loss of SACS district-wide accreditation due to uncontrollable events, such as court rulings about the law permitting the Governor to remove school boards under certain conditions.
“If Supt Thurmond provides his blanket approval, I’ve agreed to network with any DeKalb high school council that needs assistance with how to organize the dual accreditation process.”
