SACS/AdvancED External Review Visit

AdvancED/SACS CASI District Accreditation
Welcome to Butts County Schools AdvancED/SACS CASI general information site! This site provides information regarding the district accreditation protocol offered by AdvancED. Currently, the Butts County School District and each of its schools are fully accredited. This means that annually, every public school in Butts County meets or exceeds the accreditation standards that support student achievement. In October 2008, Butts County Schools was one of the school districts to undergo an AdvancED District Accreditation. On
 February 23-26, 2014, the school district will again host an AdvancED External Review Team to certify its district accreditation for another five years.
