Replacing Elected Superintendents

Mississippi lawmakers are considering a measure that would let school boards appoint replacements for elected school superintendents who resign in the next three years.
In 2016, the legislature enacted a law making all 55 elected superintendents appointed, beginning in 2020.
Webster County Superintendent Jack Treloar, who was elected, resigned Dec. 31. House Education Committee Chairman John Moore says it would cost the county $60,000 to elect a school chief to serve only part of a term.
House Bill 32 would allow school boards to appoint superintendents to fill any vacancy in the state.
