Biloxi School Board Controversy Resolved

The Biloxi School Board and school administrators are pledging to put their differences behind them.

School board members, retiring superintendent Dr. Larry Drawdy and newly-appointed superintendent Dr. Paul Tisdale sent a response letter to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, the independent accreditation agency that is investigating the school district.

The letter says the school district has complied with the agency's standards and addressed allegations that some board members have overstepped their authority.

They are hoping this letter will convince SACS the school district does not need to be investigated.
