The Birmingham School System has been put on probation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
School system officials said Thursday that although probation is a serious matter for the district, all of its schools are still accredited for the time being.
The accreditation agency sent a review team to Birmingham in mid-May and a report outlined micro management among other issues in the school district.
Birmingham Schools Superintendent Craig Witherspoon says the district has already started implementing some of the accreditation agency's recommendations.
WBRC-TV reports the district will be on probation for at least six months and the system will be reviewed again Feb. 15, 2014.
