Jackson Schools Ask for Help Finding Superintendent

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — Mississippi’s second-largest school district is seeking legal guidance on hiring its next superintendent. School board members in Jackson have asked Attorney General Jim Hood whether the work experience of the district’s three finalists to become superintendent qualifies under a 2017 Mississippi law requiring superintendents to have six years of classroom or administrative experience. A previous attorney general’s opinion interpreted the law to mean that a principal would have to work in a school that maintained improvement for three years in order to be in compliance; that opinion led the Canton Public School Board in May to rescind its appointment of an interim superintendent.
