GREENWOOD — Mississippi’s Commission on School Accreditation is meeting today to consider if it will recommend that a state of emergency be declared in the Greenwood School District.
Such a recommendation would clear the way for the state Board of Education to ask Gov. Phil Bryant to declare an emergency, leading to a state takeover of the 2,900-student district.
The state would remove Superintendent Montrelle Greene and the school board and appoint a conservator to run the district.
A report issued earlier this month by the Mississippi Department of Education alleges Greenwood is reporting inaccurate information on employee pay and job descriptions.
It accuses school board members of making decisions in illegal closed meetings and interfering in daily school operations. The document also questions $29,000 in federal money spent on parental involvement.
