JPS Board votes not to renew superintendent's contract

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - The Jackson Public Schools' Board of Trustees has voted not to renew the contract of Superintendent Lonnie Edwards.

The vote actually took place on Dec. 7th, but trustees made it official during an executive-session meeting Wednesday night.

That's when Dr. Edwards was notified.

Dr. Edwards has 10 days to request a hearing on the matter.

If he does not, the board will move forward with the search for a new superintendent for Jackson Public Schools.
