JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) - Gov. Phil Bryant says a state of extreme emergency exists in the Noxubee County School District.

Wednesday afternoon, Bryant issued the proclamation declaring a state of emergency for the district.

Last week, the district's leaders appeared before the state department of education. The state's education leaders forwarded the case to the governor for approval of a state takeover.

The Mississippi Department of Education says it is sending an official to the district tomorrow.
