(Cleveland, MS)- Courts records indicate the Cleveland School District’s modified desegregation plan might fare better with the U.S. Justice Department of Justice than its predecessor which federal lawyers labeled as unconstitutional. Last week the Bolivar County School Board voted n favor of an alternate plan proposed by Superintendent Jacquelyn Thigpen that would send ninth through 10th grade students to the current East Side High campus and 11th through 12th grade students to the current Cleveland High campus. All sixth through eighth grade students would attend the historically white Margaret Green.
