SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah state school trustees are due to consider the accreditation fate of two private schools, and to review the status of four public high schools.
The Utah Board of Education is expected Friday to decide whether the John Locke Academy and the School for Autistic Healing should lose accreditation.
The two schools are separate but have the same principal. Both are appealing the recommendations.
Accreditation is based on factors including curriculum, counselor-to-student ratio and assessment.
State accreditation specialist Georgia Loutensock says Bingham, Kearns and Timpanogos public high schools are on "advised" status for having teachers with excessive student loads.
American Leadership Academy charter school in Spanish Fork made the advised list due to under-qualified personnel and a late report.
