July 7--  The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) has removed the Appling County school system from probation.

The system was placed on probation last August after an investigation showed some school personnel had been arbitrarily transferred or demoted for expressing opinions contrary to those of the school superintendent and some school board members.

Since then Appling has a new school superintendent and three new school board members which SACS says have taken necessary steps to correct previous issues.

SACS will continue to monitor the school system this school term and return it to full accreditation if warranted by the evaluation.
