Montgomery schools look to change to save costs

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Montgomery Public Schools officials are
looking at changing the system's accreditation process in order to
cut costs.

Currently, individual MPS schools go through a review process by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools every five years to ensure they are meeting seven accreditation standards.

The system hopes to start using a districtwide accreditation process that would reduce its cost for assessments but create more accountability in the district.

MPS executive director Margaret Allen tells the Montgomery Advertiser in a Sunday story that the process has started but implementation will require the effort of all stakeholders.

With the change the district will spend a maximum of $25,00 every five years compared to current costs of at least $46,000.
