The Lowndes County Schools System is fully-accredited by AdvancED. In March 2013 the system completed a comprehensive self-assessment and hosted an onsite visit by a team from AdvancED. After its evaluation, the team presented the Lowndes County Board of Education with its report, identifying powerful practices and areas on which to improve.
