School districts discussing paying for their MASS conference fees before public funds ban begins

Backlash from Initiative 42 support comes in form of new law

The Mississippi Association of School Superintendents hosts a summer conference and educators from across the state get continuing education credits for attending. The districts usually foot the bill for registration and dues. But if they do that this year, they’d be breaking the law.

“Some guidance has been issued out to go ahead and do the paperwork now, prior to the beginning of the law,” said Madison County Superintendent Dr. Ronnie McGehee.

It wasn’t guidance directly from the association. Instead, it was brought up within several districts’ discussions.

But Madison County won’t do that and risk the loss of any funding.
