Chatham County, NC - Chatham County Schools has been recognized as a “2005-2006 Super System for Quality Schools” by the Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (CASI) of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). The district is among 541 school districts in the eleven state SACS CASI region that qualified for this recognition. Among these were fifty-two North Carolina school districts. Chatham County Schools earned the distinction for having all its elementary, middle, and secondary schools accredited.

Accreditation is a process of helping institutions improve through a systematic program of evaluation, assuring that an institution not only meets quality standards, but also that it demonstrates a continuous commitment to providing quality education programs that are aimed at improving student performance.

Founded in 1895, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools is a voluntary, nongovernmental agency composed of more than 13,000 accredited colleges and universities, elementary, middle and secondary schools. Headquartered in Decatur, Georgia, SACS serves eleven southern states as well as the countries of Mexico, Central and South America, islands of the Caribbean, and other geographic areas.
