The Burke County school system has dodged a bullet and will keep its high school accreditation from AdvancED.
AdvancED told school board members on Thursday that they had decided not to go ahead with their decision to pull accreditation at the end of June. Instead, citing progress made by the school system, they're putting Burke County on probation.
How this decision could impact Wake remains to be seen. During today's press conference, Wake Superintendent Tony Tata said the district is in "good shape' to respond to AdvancED when the monitoring team comes back in the fall.
