The Commission on Starkville Consolidated School District Structure considered Mississippi State Universityâ€™s potential involvement with the future consolidated district at its Thursday evening meeting.
Consolidation began earlier this year, when Gov. Phil Bryant approved House Bill 716, which called for the two districts to merge in July 2015. The bill created a seven-member commission to study the consolidation to prepare a report to the Mississippi legislature by March.
