Accreditation:

The system as a whole, along with each individual school, is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, the largest and most prestigious accrediting agency in the region. SACS completed its decennial evaluation of middle and elementary schools in the spring of 1991, renewing accreditation for 10 years. Evaluations of high schools are done on separate, individual schedules and are current. The system complies with the rules, regulations and standards set by Georgia's Department of Education. All members of the Board of Public Education hold certification of professional training provided by the Georgia School Boards Association.

Facilities:

The district operates more than 40 schools and satellite facilities. A multi-million dollar construction and expansion program is underway. Two specialty facilities, which are heavily used by the public, are Massie Heritage Interpretation Center, a preserved historic school; and Oatland Island Education Center, an environmental education complex.

Governance:

An elected Board of Public Education is the policy-making branch of the school district's administration. The board president is elected county-wide for a four year term. Eight board members, representing geographic districts coinciding with those of the Chatham County Commission, are also elected to four-year terms.

The superintendent of schools, appointed by the board, is charged with implementing board policy and overall administration of the school system.

Choices:

By utilizing one of the voluntary components of the district's desegregation plan, families may have choices for school attendance. The choice programs are magnet academies, which offer enhanced facilities and specialized programs on an identified theme; SELECT schools, which offer special programs not found in other schools; and majority-to-minority transfers, in which a student may choose to transfer from a school in which he is in the racial majority to one in which he would be in the racial minority. Admission to the choice programs is based upon voluntary applications to the specific programs, curriculums, and facilities. The need to improve or maintain racial composition at some schools is a factor in whether a student is accepted into these programs. All of the choice programs are voluntary components of the Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools desegregation plan.
