DORSEY, Miss. (WTVA) - The Itawamba County School District will vote on March 2 to move students in seventh and eighth grades at Dorsey Attendance Center and Fairview Attendance Center to Itawamba Attendance Center.

Superintendent Trae Wiygul said that financially, the district needs to make a change and this move could result in savings north of $300,000.

Over a hundred community members gathered at a meeting in Dorsey on Tuesday to listen to the changes and hear the administration's reasoning.

Wiygul said the students would be welcomed with open arms to their new home and teachers at the schools would be retained.

The School Board will meet on Monday, March 2 at 6:30 p.m.
