Greenwood Schools Hope To Improve On "D"

Chicot Memorial


GREENWOOD, MS (Ben Caxton) — The new superintendent of Greenwood’s public schools is pledging stronger academic performance from a district that received a “D” rating last year. Jennifer Wilson became superintendent in March and last week at a Rotary Club meeting said teachers and administrators are working aggressively to improve student achievement. Three schools were rated F last year and if any of the three failing schools receives an F again this year, the individual school could be taken over by the state. Wilson says that won’t happen and that improving academic achievement is essential. State lawmakers voted to consolidate Greenwood with the Leflore County School District in 2019. Leflore County schools have been under state control since 2013 because of academic failure.
