Community members came out in force on Thursday evening to make their voices heard at the Commission on Starkville/Oktibbeha Consolidated School Districtâ€™s first public hearing.
The hearing allowed anyone from the public to address the seven-member commission about the Starkville and Oktibbeha County school districtsâ€™ coming consolidation. Commission members couldnâ€™t respond to the publicâ€™s questions or comments, but took concerns and suggestions into consideration for their continued mission to prepare a report for the Mississippi legislature by March.
