STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) -- The Starkville School District is accepting nominations for people to serve as representatives on a committee to review a potential condolidation with the Oktibbheha County School District.
Under the plan passed by Mississippi House and Senate, the commission would be made up of a representative from the Mississippi Department of Education, Mississippi State, two former residents and the conservator of the Oktibbeha County School District, and three members of the Starkville School District.
The bill has yet to be signed by Governor Phil Bryant, but the committee would have to hold its first meeting within 30 days.
The commission will review both districts and develop a plan to consolidate the districts into the newly created Starkville Consolidated
The bill leaves open the possibility for parts of the Oktibbeha County School district to be consolidated with districts in other counties.
The plan would be presented to state leaders by March 1, 2014.
Starkville school leaders say anyone interested in nominating someone to serve on the committee can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Monday, April 22.
