Mississippi: 18 school districts, including Natchez-Adams on probation for violations

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A total of 18 Mississippi public school districts have been put on probation for breaking state rules.

Kemper County and Wayne County are included on the list, along with Jackson Public Schools, which remains at risk of a state takeover.

The state School Accreditation Commission Tuesday approved the probation list. Of the districts, 13 were cited for teachers or professional staff who lack the correct state licenses, meaning they are either unlicensed or are working outside the fields for which they are licensed.

The commission didn't strip accreditation from any district.

The state Board of Education has asked Gov. Phil Bryant to declare an emergency in the 27,000-student Jackson district, allowing a state takeover. Bryant said he wanted to wait until the district's letter grade is officially released, a move scheduled to come Thursday.

Here's a list of all the school districts on probation:

-- Calhoun County

-- Coahoma Agricultural High School

-- Coahoma County

-- Durant

-- Hazlehurst

-- Humphreys County


-- Jackson

-- Jefferson County

-- Kemper County

-- Leake County

-- Leland

-- McComb

-- Natchez-Adams

-- North Bolivar

-- Wayne County

-- West Bolivar

-- Yazoo City

-- Yazoo County
