Report details 9 standards violations

THE STAR- A report compiled by an independent school-accrediting team details a number of problems at Anniston High School, and says many stemmed from the management style of former Superintendent Sammy Lee Felton.

Interim Superintendent Joan Frazier released the report Friday.

The report, compiled by a review team for the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement, lists nine violations of SACS standards for high schools.

And dont' forget about....

Event raised money for Relay for Life

THE STAR-Philip Jenkins, a math teacher at Oxford Middle School, can recite some of it to the Brady Bunch Theme. Hannah Galloway, an eighth-grade math student, can recite it to 60 places, without theme music.

Pi, the mathematical symbol defined as the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, begins with "3.14" and trails off into infinity.

But pie, the cream-filled kind, provided a short-term thrill Friday. It was, by no coincidence, March 14, or the 14th day of the third month of the year (think 3.14).

The school divided students into five teams. Each raised money for Relay for Life, an annual event to help fund cancer research, by voting for which teacher they would most like to see hit in the face with a pie.
