One In Five Mississippi School Districts Improved

Chicot Memorial

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — About one in five Mississippi school districts showed improvement under the state’s rating system in 2016-2017. In grades released yesterday, some benefited from better graduation rates and test scores while others apparently benefited from changes in the scoring system. The number of districts scoring As, Bs and Cs increased and the number of F-rated districts fell from 20 to nine. Both Clarksdale and the Coahoma County districts raised their grades from F to D while Coahoma Early College improved from C to B. Six districts, including Jackson, have been rated F two years in a row which makes them eligible to be taken over by the state. Mississippi’s three charter schools also performed poorly with two getting Ds and one getting a second F.
