(STURGIS) – Sturgis Public Schools are looking at a new organization to receive their accreditation.

During Monday's meeting, Assistant Superintendent Julie Evans shared with the Board of Education about starting the process of having the State of Michigan do their accreditation, instead of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools or NCA.

Under the NCA accreditation, a group of people would visit and review what the school district is doing. Evans says through the State of Michigan, it's a little bit different process. ...... {LISTEN}.

School Board member Frank Kalasky asked if this new accreditation would be looked at differently by colleges and universities who are used to the NCA standards. Evans says they contacted some colleges and military institutes to get their input on the matter. ...... {LISTEN}.

It had originally been discussed to end the NCA affiliation following the 2014-15 school year, which is when their accreditation would need to be renewed. But Evans says there was an error on her part and they would like to end the relationship now and start on the process for the State of Michigan accreditation.

The Board unanimously approved the recommendation.
