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
