Transition Planning Commission

A bill passed by the state legislature Monday is a win for proponents of municipal school districts here in Shelby County--a provision of the bill  allows the suburbs outside of Memphis to hold referendums on whether or not they want to create their own, separate school districts this year. The rest of the bill is about school bullying.

“It doesn’t have anything to do with it,” said Senior Reporter for the Memphis Daily News Bill Dries.


The Transition Planning Commission charged with planning the merger of Memphis and Shelby County Schools gathered ideas and inspiration for the new district through a grueling series of public listening sessions.
