Va. community college on accreditation probation

Friday - 6/29/2012, 1:09pm  ET

LYNCHBURG, Va. - Central Virginia Community College is launching an initiative to improve how it evaluates students' academic success after an accrediting body put the school on probation.

Media outlets report that President John Capps announced the Focus '14 initiative Thursday. The initiative is designed to ensure the Lynchburg school meets compliance standards by 2013.

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools put Central Virginia on probation last week. The accrediting body said the school failed to sufficiently evaluate its educational programs' effectiveness.

The association will review Central Virginia's probationary status in 2013 and conduct a full review in 2014.
