JACKSON, Miss. (AP/WTVA) — Mississippi's state Board of Education is approving most of the A-to-F ratings for public schools and districts that it delayed last month.

The board voted on Thursday to approve ratings for all but the Corinth school district and four schools that deal with special populations. The board is likely to consider the remaining ratings in November after it gets more information about whether it's legally required to rate those schools.

A state Department of Education task force is supposed to continue looking into Mississippi's rating system in coming months after some local school officials voiced strong discontent with the system. A majority of the board is rejecting a move by some members to appoint a new task force with more board members to conduct that review.
