Mississippi approves Tulsa administrator as new chief for Jackson school district

The Associated Press and WAPT-TV - September 1, 2018 10:24 am

(Information from: WAPT-TV, http://www.wapt.com)
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – The Mississippi Department of Education has approved an Oklahoma administrator as the new superintendent for Jackson Public Schools.
WAPT-TV reports that on Thursday the department issued an administrator’s license for Errick Greene, who was appointed Aug. 21 to replace Cedrick Gray. Gray resigned in November 2016 after Jackson received a failing academic rating and the state put the 27,000-student district on probation.
The board of trustees will now move forward with approving Greene’s contract. He’s expected to start on or before Oct. 1.
Greene is currently a top administrator for Tulsa schools. He previously was a special assistant to the emergency manager for Detroit public schools. He also was a principal and managed a group of principals in Washington, D.C.
