HCMS falls shy of accreditation / October 05, 2017

Halifax County Middle School is among the 34 state public schools to be granted “Partially Accredited Reconstituted School” status, the Virginia Board of Education announced yesterday.

The state board said the rating is given to schools that are making progress toward meeting state standards for full accreditation under the board’s current accountability regulations. To be fully accredited, 75 percent or more of students must pass their English SOLs or a substitute test approved by the state, and 70 percent or more must pass their SOLs or substitute tests in math, science and history/social studies.

Reconstitution is a process to improve instruction by restructuring a school’s governance, faculty, instruction program or student population.

Four county schools previously received fully accredited status from the state including Cluster Springs Elementary, South Boston Elementary, Sydnor Jennings Elementary and Halifax County High School.

Sinai, Clays Mill, Scottsburg, Meadville and the middle school are short of full accreditation.
