Neshoba superintendent updates supervisors on schools
The Neshoba County Board of Supervisors invited Neshoba County School District Superintendent Josh Perkins to their regular meeting to welcome him to Neshoba County and meet the members of the Board.
The superintendent updated supervisors on the School District including enrollment, attendance, and future plans.
“For the 2022-23 school year, Neshoba County was rated as the fourth-highest district in the state,” Perkins said. “This speaks a lot about the staff, the people, the residents, and the pride that they take in the school.”
Additionally, during their regular business, the board approved two school bus turnarounds on County Road 632 with requests for work on those turnarounds.
