Appointed superintendents bill going to Mississippi governor

A bill headed to the Mississippi governor would eliminate the election of school superintendents after the current term.

The House passed Senate Bill 2438 (http://bit.ly/1RpuTs3 ) with little debate Thursday night.

The bill passed the Senate in February and because the House made no changes, it goes to Gov. Phil Bryant. It would require that all school districts appoint their superintendents starting in 2019.
