RALEIGH — A powerful accreditation agency has threatened to immediately remove its certification from Wake County’s high schools unless the school system cooperates with its review.

In a letter to the school system, Kenneth Bergman, the general counsel for Advancing Excellence in Education Worldwide, or AdvancED, writes that the agency is concerned about the “openly defiant nature” of Wake’s reaction to its special review. Bergman added that refusing to cooperate is a “direct violation” of AdvancEd’s policies and “constitutes grounds for dropping accreditation.”

Bergman is warning that unless Wake provides the information it wants on the change in student assignment policy and a variety of other issues by Oct. 1, it will declare the district in violation of the organization’s policies.
