GREENSBURG - An external review team for the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools will be on campus at St. Helena Central Elementary and High schools this week.

The team will interview administrators, observe teachers and speak with student and parent groups in a process school officials hope will lead to district accreditation.

SACS is a division of Advance Education, a nonprofit organization that seeks to improve educational quality through accreditation and other school improvement initiatives.

School officials submitted a report to SACS on Sept. 21 outlining the district's vision, achievements, self-assessment and goals for improvement.

Now a review team for the association will visit the district to determine whether best practices are in place for reaching those goals.
