PURVIS, Miss. (AP) - Lamar County School District officials have expanded their vision of future career academies in the district from having one at Oak Grove High to having an academy at each of the district's three high schools.
The Hattiesburg American reports (http://hatne.ws/PpoD76 ) the district is currently involved in the first year of a $45,000, 3-year grant to research the concept of career academies at Oak Grove, Purvis and Sumrall high schools.
Earlier this school year, officials were looking into the possibility of starting a health science career academy at Oak Grove High School.
Superintendent Ben Burnett said he is in favor of a different career academy at each high school.
