The Mississippi Department of Education announced that it will be taking over the Yazoo City Municipal School District during its board meeting Thursday morning.
And the Yazoo City Municipal School Board will be disbanded by June.
Over 5,000 signatures were provided to lawmakers last week in support of the Yazoo backwater pump station that was halted in 2008.
Two separate traffic stops last week led deputies on chases that resulted in two drug arrests.
In the first incident, Demarion Moorehead, 24, was charged with possession of marijuana, felony fleeing and switched tag.
A truck driver was arrested this week after allegedly smoking crystal meth prior to his delivery to a local business.
Christopher Grammer, 40, was charged with possession of a controlled substance, driving under the influence and possession of paraphernalia.
