As the March 2014 deadline for the Commission on Starkville Consolidated School District Structure to submit its report to the Mississippi legislature approaches, school officials are having to consider what funding will be needed for the merger and potential projects beyond.

The consolidation process began earlier this year when Gov. Phil Bryant approved House Bill 716, which called for the merging of the Oktibbeha County and Starkville school districts. The districts will merge in July 2015. Part of the consolidation process includes a seven-member commission studying the issue and reporting to the legislature by March 1.
