Lawmakers eye school district mergers

Bills are moving ahead in the Mississippi Senate that would require the merger of two sets of school districts in 2019.

Senate Bill 2461 would merge the Perry County and Richton school districts. Senate Bill 2463 would consolidate the Houston and Chickasaw County school districts. However, unlike earlier proposals, it would exclude the Okolona school district from merging with those two.

The Senate Education Committee passed both measures, sending them to the full Senate for more debate.
