JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) -- Governor Phil Bryant has signed a bill creating a commission to study a consolidation of the Starkville and Oktibbeha County school districts.

The governor gave his okay to the plan last week.

Under the plan, 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 advisory committee will review both districts and recommend how the consolidation could take place.

The panel will present their findings to the lawmakers by March 1, 2014.
