Lt. Governor Willing To Listen On Greenwood-Leflore Merger

Chicot Memorial

GREENWOOD, MS (Ben Caxton) — Lt. Governor Tate Reeves is defending lawmakers’ decision to consolidate Mississippi school districts. Reeves says he’s willing to listen to objections to the upcoming merger of the Greenwood and Leflore County districts but is committed to reducing both the number of school districts in Mississippi and the number of failing ones. State Senator David Jordan of Greenwood said last week that he will try to block a 2016 law mandating consolidation of the Greenwood and Leflore districts in 2019. He says a merger would be unfair to the Greenwood district, which has a grade of C on the state’s A-to-F accountability rating. The Leflore County district has an F rating.
