Gov. Bryant authorizes appointment of a conservator for Scott County School District

Gov. Phil Bryant has issued a proclamation authorizing the Mississippi Board of Education to appoint a conservator for the Scott County School District.

The governor's declaration will not cause a loss of accreditation for the district and will allow a conservator to begin addressing issues the Board of Education has identified. The Scott County School District is rated "B" by the Mississippi Department of Education.

Last week, the Mississippi Board of Education amended Mississippi Public School Accountability Standard 2.3, allowing the board to appoint a conservator for a school district when necessary without also requiring withdrawal of the district's accreditation.

Previously, the appointment of a conservator also required withdrawal of accreditation.
