Mississippi District 28 Senator Sollie B. Norwood News Release

A public meeting is planned for Thursday August 25, 2016, from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. at Pearl Street AME Church, 2519 Robinson Road, Jackson, to find community solutions for fixing the problems with Jackson Public Schools.

We seek community engagement to address the multiple issues that threaten this school system since it is our children that matter the most.

Every voice is important and asked to attend as we learn what is broken, how it can be fixed and how we can turn around our school district.

We ask educators, both active and retired and members of the general public to gather with us now to address these concerns.

Officials with the Mississippi Department of Education and Jackson Public Schools will be invited, but we need you, the community to attend and assist us with this task.
