MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - The Meridian School Board voted unanimously at a special meeting Thursday to consolidate Carver Middle School.

Students will be split between Magnolia Middle School and Northwest Middle School.

The plan is for the two Middle Schools to be one school across two campuses.

“It’s no secret across the nation there is a teacher shortage,” Dr. Amy Carter, Superintendent of Meridian Public School District, said. “It is always our goal to ensure that every classroom is staffed with a qualified, dedicated educator. Instead of spreading our resources so thin across three middle schools now we are able to celebrate two middle schools being fully staffed and ready to educate our students.”

Carter ensured that the historic building of Carter Middle School will not remain closed for long and that plans for the building will be announced in the near future.

Plans and the maps for redistricting of students who will attend the other middle schools will also be released soon, we will update you as any new information becomes available.
