If all goes according to schedule, the St. Louis Public Schools will regain state accreditation in 2011. But first the Special Administrative Board that's running the district must approve an accountability plan designed to get the school back in the good graces of the state.

Earlier this week, the administrative board was presented the lengthy, 48-page plan that aims to improve conditions in five key areas:
  • Student Performance
  • Highly Qualified Staff
  • Facilities, Instructional Programs, Support
  • Parent and Community Involvement
  • Governance
And Superintendent Kelvin Adams has a homework assignment for all teachers, parents and city stakeholders concerned with the district: Take a look at the plan and its supporting documents (viewable here), and let the district know what you think.
