Absolutely YES!!! If you want your children to attend college, they have to graduate from an accredited high school.

On Friday, May 28, 2010 at 4:00 PM, the Coffee County Board of Education held a special called meeting to review the findings and recommendations of the Quality Review Team through AdvancED.

Superintendent Dr. Wilmoth read the summary from the AdvancED Monitoring Team’s report in reference to their recent visit conducted May 2-4, 2010. This report summarizes the team’s findings related to the Coffee County School District’s progress in meeting the required actions outlined in the initial report from the Quality Assurance Review Team visit March 1-4, 2009.

The Monitoring Team report indicates that the continuing accreditation of the schools in Coffee County is highly regarded and a source of pride among the community. However, the school system’s continuing accreditation is in serious jeopardy as the actions of Board members are in direct conflict with their own policies and AdvancED Accreditation Standards. Evidence reveals that the current Board has not demonstrated its ability to provide consistent, positive and effective leadership in moving the system forward. Quick and focused action must be taken to address the directives within this report.

As identified in the report, the Coffee County School District is required to submit a follow-up Institution Progress Report by September 1, 2010. The district should report the additional actions it has taken to address the recommendations of the Quality Assurance Review Team and provide documentation of such actions. A Monitoring Team will visit the Coffee County School District in October 2010 to assess their progress. The Monitoring Team has recommended that the accreditation status of Coffee County School District be changed to Probation.

The report is as follows:

They at least all need to be educated themselves. What degrees do any of them hold? Billy Cliett is a former teacher and principal so he has at least a Bachelors most likely an administrative degree. What about the others? Does anyone know?

Only Cliett has education beyond high school. The thing about education is that it is more than dollars and cents; it is about the future of our community......our children. It would be very unfortunate for our community to suffer because of a few nuckleheads! The needs of the many out weigh the needs of a few. Do not punish the "boots on the ground" (our teachers) so a few of the top heavy central office staff can keep their jobs!

College degrees don't make them brilliant.
OBAMA is educated and a fool!!!
If I recall Cliett's first day on the job as a board member he sold out to RJ and voted to rename the 9th grade academy. What was his prize? Chairman on his first day on the job!
WAY TO GO!!!!!!

Correct -- college degrees doesn't make a person intelligent. If you really knew what BC did as an administrator, you surely would not want him as a board member. He had a lot of axes to grind.
Which board member was it who charged something to the bus barn, thinking he would get away with paying for it. When he got caught, he paid! Isn't this a violation of something?

Keeping notes - your racist remark towards President Obama are uncalled for. This is about this Board and this town filled with other ignorant people like you. For the record, the majority of President Obama first initiatives were left overs from President Bush and I did hear many complaints then.

Stay on topic. If you fire all Board members and some county executives that will send a clear message that Douglas expects integrity and a solid education.

All five (5) board members need to "man up" and resign. This would allow for a total fresh start for the board. It would show that these five (5) men do not want to be stumbling blocks for education in Coffee County.

Don't call me a racist! He is a fool I don't care what color he is. I think you are pretty ignorant yourself and I sure don't know your color but I recognize your stupidity. By the way I didn't like Bush either.
Now you get back on topic also. Cliett did meet with Johnson and Chaney and backdoored the renaming of the 9th grade academy and I don't care if they had wanted to name it for Ronald Reagan it was still done illegally at taxpayers expense!
