State education officials are warning Pueblo City Schools the clock is ticking on their attempts to fix problems that could affect student graduations.

Colorado Department of Education executive Peter Sherman told the school board and administrators on Thursday the school district has too many students who have low scores on state tests.

The state rates schools and districts annually based on student achievement. Districts and schools that rate as turnaround or priority improvement have five years to improve those ratings or face action by the state, including losing accreditation. Some schools are in the fourth year of mandated remediation.

The Pueblo Chieftain reports loss of accreditation could affect student graduation and scholarships.
