CAMERON PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

After seven years of waiting, the Cameron Parish School District was finally honored with National Accreditation.

The decision was made by the AdvancED Quality Assure Review Team. Cameron Parish schools scored a "Highly Functional" rating for Governance and Leadership, as well as Resources and Support Systems.

Members on the review team said Cameron Parish had some of the most beautiful schools they've seen.

Vice Chairperson on the team Monica Wertz said other parishes should look at Cameron as a model for how a school system should operate.

Olivia Vidal will have more on the story on the later editions of 7 News.
