January 16-- The Montgomery County school system expects to get a positive report regarding its probation status from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).
The system was placed on probation last summer regarding school board governance issues and underwent a follow-up review from a SACS team in December.
Superintendent Randy Rodgers told the January meeting of the school board he has spoken with SACS and been told the board is ahead of schedule in making improvements. Rodgers says he expects the system will be removed from probation by the end of this school term.
The school board is changing the dates of its monthly meetings for 2012. Meetings will be held the second Thursday of each month.
