LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Haskell Indian Nations University says its School of Education has received national accreditation.

The school in Lawrence says the National Council of Teacher Education recently accredited the education school after an on-campus visit last fall.

6News Lawrence reports (http://bit.ly/ZmrkpK ) Haskell is the first tribal college in the United States to receive this type of accreditation.

Jacqueline Boyd, chairwoman of the School of Education, says the school passed five of six standards involved in the accreditation. The sixth standard is in the area of assessment standards.

The national council's accreditation team will visit the campus in the fall of 2014 to address the area of assessment standards. The School of Education will have to renew the national accreditation every seven years.
