Carl Edward Pettigrew, 58, of Yazoo City passed away Monday July, 25, 2016 at home surrounded by his loved ones. Carl was a retired Warehouse Manager for Federal Compress and Warehouse Co. after many years of service.
In what formerly took as many as three to four hours to accomplish, the Yazoo City school board and superintendent were able to pull off Wednesday's monthly meeting in 40 minutes. Many spectators left the meeting awed by a new sense of organization and efficiency.
The highly anticipated new school and district ratings were recently released based on Mississippi’s A-F accountability system that evaluates how schools and districts performed in the 2014-15 school year.
