OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — A second Mississippi school district is considering a shorter summer break with longer breaks during the school year.
The Oxford school district is considering the change as part of its designation by the state as a district of innovation. The Oxford Eagle reports that the district proposes a shift to a different calendar in the 2022-23 school year.
Superintendent Brian Harvey says the district will consider the shift this fall and hasn’t made any decisions yet.

The Oxford school board could make a decision in December.
