GREENWOOD — The Commission on School Accreditation voted yesterday against recommending that a state of emergency be declared in the Greenwood School District.
The Commission decided to give the district until Oct. 15 to correct all of the deficiencies found in the Mississippi Department of Education’s audit report. The MDE and the Mississippi School Board Association will provide the district with technical assistance in the areas that need correction before Oct. 15. After the Oct. 15 deadline, the MDE is to conduct a full investigative audit of the district.
The Commission’s decision followed a presentation from the MDE of its audit report findings and a response from Greenwood School District representatives.
