ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dougherty County School Officials say they've made improvements since the last time accreditation officials visited in October 2012.     

The system earned re-accreditation, but the team recommended several improvements to make sure students don't fall through the cracks. Board members got a progress report tonight.      Officials say hiring Superintendent David Mosely and assembling a task force to monitor each student's personal and academic well-being put the system on the right path.  

"Things changed pretty significantly within about six months of the team's last visit," said R.D. Harter, DCSS Public Information Director. "So we're well on our way to I think to being in very good shape with the accreditation agency, AdvancED."       

The organization said the system excelled in career and magnet school focus. The system has to show the accreditation team by the end of the year how it has addressed their concerns.
