Lawmakers to review Chickasaw consolidation

CHICKASAW COUNTY – The Mississippi Legislature will now decide the details of consolidation to join Houston, Okolona and Houlka schools.

A report by the Commission on Chickasaw County School Consolidation has been written and was sent to lawmakers last week and the Legislature could vote this spring on how Chickasaw County’s three school districts will become a county school district with one board of trustees and one superintendent.

Billed as an administrative consolidation, there are no plans to close any schools, build new schools or do away with teachers, coaches or staff.
