JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi education officials say they expect to approve plans next month to fix state accreditation violations in Jackson and two other school districts.
Chief Accountability Officer Paula Vanderford said Thursday that the Mississippi Department of Education will work with leaders in the three districts to fix problems in their corrective action plans.
The other districts whose plans weren’t approved are Hazlehurst and Natchez-Adams.
Vanderford predicts all three revised plans will be approved in March.
