MACON, Miss. (WTVA) - The Noxubee County School District is looking forward to the coming years after year one of its state takeover.

"It's been a very productive school year and challenging school year,” Interim Superintendent Rodriguez Broadnax said. “State takeovers are not easy."

He has pushed for five core values in the district:

  • Accountability
  • Respect
  • Empower
  • Consistent
  • Relationships

Broadnax has completed year one of his five-year term but could stay longer.

“I know the school is doing a whole lot better,” Parent James Brandon said. “They are working a whole lot more than last year. If they listen to them, they will be ok."

Broadnax said the real testing ground will be after the 2019-2020 school year.
