House Education Committee passes out Achievement School District bill

By: Magnolia Tribune - February 23, 2016

Bill would change approach to failing schools

Currently, school districts that don’t meet accreditation standards face state takeover, or control of the district by a conservator appointed by the state education department.

But under a new model called the Achievement School District, schools that have been rated an F for two consecutive years by the 2017-2018 school year would be brought under a statewide district run by a superintendent and appointed school board.

Rep. Charles Busby, R-Pascagoula, presented the bill to committee members.

Busby said about 60 schools could fall into this category, though the number could change by the time the model is implemented.
