CLAY COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) — While the Starkville-Oktibbeha County schools consolidation plan is seeing some changes, the proposal to merge the West Point and Clay districts clears another hurdle.

The House Education Committee approved the bill just as it passed the Senate three weeks ago. The decision came with little debate.

The bill likely won’t be taken up by the full house until Friday or next week. If it clears the House with no changes, it’ll go to the governor.

The bill calls for a five-person school board elected from the county’s five supervisory districts and would take effect in 2015.

The Clay district has only about 160 students in grades K-5 at one school, West Clay Elementary. All others already attend West Point schools.

The merger would save as much as $300,000 in administrative costs.
