ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A national accreditation organization wrapped up a 5-day visit at Dougherty County schools this week. 

The Advanced Ed accreditation team focused on the school district's overall improvement since their last visit back in 2012.

The team of six performed about 160 interviews with staff, parents and community partners. 

They visited six different schools and more than 50 classrooms. 

Spokesperson J.D. Sumner said it gave the schools an opportunity to have an outsider's perspective on their key improvements. 

"We're pretty confident that we left them with a lot to think about and that the things we are doing are ultimately things that will get us headed in the right direction," 

The results from Dougherty County School accreditation visit will be available in 45 days.
