STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) -- The move to consolidate Starkville and Oktibbeha County schools continues.

Members of the Commission on Starkville/Oktibbeha Consolidate School District Structure continue to hammer out details.

Plans call for the transfer of grades 9-12 from Oktibbeha County to Starkville High School during the 2014-2015 school year.

For one year, 7th and 8th grades from the Oktibbeha County schools will attend East Oktibbeha Elementary and West Oktibbeha Elementary.

Commission members continue to haggle over the timeline, however.

At least one member feels high school students should be able to make the move sooner, but the superintendent of Starkville schools says the district does not have the cafeteria space to handle an influx of more than 200 students.

More meetings are planned.
