Mississippi Taking Over Failing School Districts

JACKSON, Miss.–The state is now officially taking over two failing school districts in Mississippi.

Governor Phil Bryant on Monday declared a state of emergency is present in the Claiborne County School District and in the Leflore County School District which authorizes the state Department of Education to take immediate corrective action.

This is in response to resolutions adopted by the Mississippi Board of Education at its Sept. 13, 2013, meeting, requesting a State of Emergency be declared for each district because of the conditions.

The Commission on School Accreditation and the State Board of Education have found that an extreme emergency exists in each district, jeopardizing the safety, security and educational interests of students according to the Governor’s press release.
