The director of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges said on Monday that the Association does not have a firm timeline for when it will issue a decision on whether to continue Belmont High School’s accreditation, after a report by the association last month criticized the school’s curriculum and safety.

Director of the Commission Janet Allison said that typically, the NEASC would issue a decision within five or six weeks of such a report, but that timeline will likely be extended.

Belmont’s Interim Superintendent Thomas S. Kingston slammed the report, calling it riddled with errors. He told the Globe last week that the NEASC had offered to revise the report. But in an interview on Monday, Allison declined to comment until after she has had time to sit down with Kingston.
