Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

USF-St. Pete sanctioned by accreditors



Eighteen months after it earned independence from the main campus by getting its own accreditation, USF-St. Petersburg is facing scrutiny from the accrediting agency.

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools' commission on colleges has placed USF on "warning" status, one step away from the probation sanction that can lead to a total loss of SACS' seal of approval.

Gradebook has learned that SACS officials are concerned with the campus' compliance with a handful of standards including "General Education Core Competencies" and student achievement.

Read more on Gradebook later today, and get the full story in tomorrow's Times.
