Commission Finds Board of Education Compliant

Posted: Updated:

The North Dakota State Board of Education says they've been given a clean bill of health.

The Higher Learning Commission evaluated the board this April. Some were concerned that the NDUS may not have been in compliance with accreditation criteria.

The commission found the board and its colleges to be in compliance with the requirements in question, but they were also critical of them.

This letter from the higher learning commission says:

"While the team credited the board and the system staff with a genuine commitment to working on systematic improvement, the team concluded that the board and the system office had not yet demonstrated mature and systematic approaches to planning, evaluation and the necessary training to improve their own performance or the performance of the institution the board governs.

We also asked officials about the NDUS security breach that happened last February.

They say they're no longer concerned about it. Officials say they know that because forensic experts looked at the servers, and that the hackers compromised the server to launch other attacks.

The NDUS chancellor says security measures that weren't in place at the time of the breach are now being installed.

Three IT employees have been placed on administrative leave until the investigation is complete.
