The Meridian Public School System has submitted paperwork to appeal a recent lowering of its accreditation rating.
The rating was dropped from 'accredited' to 'advised' recently, after the Mississippi Department of Education learned of some improprieties involving state testing.
State education officials say they received a letter from the school district Monday, asking for a hearing. A date for that hearing has not yet been set.
