Welcome to the Mississippi Achievement School District.

A state law enacted in 2016 requires the Mississippi State Board of Education (SBE) to intervene in persistently failing school districts by placing the districts in a state-run Achievement School District (ASD). Districts that are rated “F” for two consecutive years or two out of three consecutive years, encompass 50% or more F-rated schools and/or have 50% or more of their students attending F-rated schools are subject to inclusion in the ASD. 

The SBE selected Humphreys County and Yazoo City to form the first Achievement School District, which will serve a total of 4,065 students, 1647 from Humphreys County and 2,418 from Yazoo City. Jermall Wright, Ed.D. serves as superintendent of Mississippi’s first Achievement School District.
