Board Urges State Takeover Of Noxubee School District

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — Mississippi’s state board of education has asked Governor Phil Bryant to authorize takeover of the F-rated Noxubee County district. Doing so would remove the current superintendent and abolish the school board, allowing the Mississippi Department of Education to appoint an interim superintendent and loan up to $2.5 million to the 1600-student district In June the school district requested an emergency state loan, saying it feared it would have trouble making payroll. The state currently controls school districts in Leflore and Tunica Counties; earlier this year Bryant rejected a request to take over the Jackson school district.
