JACKSON, Mississippi (WJTV) – School officials with the Jackson Public School District are working to reassure parents about changes coming to the district. This comes after the district was put on probation.
District leaders say they are visiting every school to make that they are compliant with state accreditation standards. The board is planning on presenting the first draft of its response to the state’s audit during the next meeting with the Mississippi State Department of Education.
Some of the issues include school safety, bus problems, and air conditioning.
The meeting held at Siwell Middle School on North Siwell Road at 6:00pm on Thursday was open to the public and was hosted by the Jackson Public Schools Board of Trustees and JPS Superintendent Cedrick Gray. It was the third such forum held this year.
Those who want more information about the event can call the district at: (601) 960.8935.
