15 area schools are a step closer to full accreditation


RICHMOND, Va. (WAVY) – More than a dozen local schools are one step closer to full accreditation.

The Virginia Department of Education (DOE) calls the status “partially accredited.” A school can be partially accredited for a number of reasons, including having students who don’t normally do well.

The DOE says schools on the list are working to fix the issues. In Hampton Roads, those schools include:

  • Franklin – S.P. Morton Elementary and Joseph P. King Jr. Middle
  • Hampton – John B. Cary Elementary and Luther W. Machen Elementary
  • Newport News – Carver Elementary and Horace H. Epes Elementary
  • Norfolk – James Monroe Elementary, Jacox Elementary, Richard Bowling Elementary, Norview Middle and Azalea Gardens Middle
  • Portsmouth – Cradock Middle
  • Southampton County – Riverdale Elementary
  • Suffolk – King’s Fork High
  • Virginia Beach – Williams Elementary

The Board of Education denied requests for reconstituted status from eight schools across the commonwealth, including three in Hampton Roads:

  • Hampton – A.W.E. Bassette Elementary and Hunter B. Andrews School
  • Portsmouth – Churchland Middle
