From the ballot box to the classroom, the dedicated workers, organizers, and leaders who forged this great organization and maintain its status as a champion of social justice, fought long and hard to ensure that the voices of African Americans would be heard. For nearly one hundred years, it has been the talent and tenacity of NAACP members that has saved lives and changed many negative aspects of American society.
|St. Louis Public Schools regain full accreditation|
On January 10th, The Missouri State Board of Education voted unanimously to grant full accreditation to the St. Louis Public School District, effective immediately. The board took its action after the district scored in the fully accredited range on its state evaluation for two straight years.
The state took control of the district's governance shortly after it became unaccredited in June 2007. The district regained provisional accreditation in October 2012. Despite the move to full accreditation, the district will remain under state control through at least June 30th, 2019.
