JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi education officials say they expect to approve plans next month to fix state accreditation violations in Jackson and two other school districts.
Chief Accountability Officer Paula Vanderford said Thursday that the Mississippi Department of Education will work with leaders in the three districts to fix problems in their corrective action plans.
The other districts whose plans weren't approved are Hazlehurst and Natchez-Adams.
Vanderford predicts all three revised plans will be approved in March.
Although the state's second largest school district avoided a state takeover after Gov. Phil Bryant decided to seek other options for improving the district, Jackson is still required to submit a plan detailing how it will fix violations of state standards.
