OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss. (AP) - The Ocean Springs School Board has declined to approve a contract that would restructure the school system’s health-care complement.

The proposal would have paved the way for the possible renewal of the contracts of its six registered nurses whose jobs with the school district were hanging in the balance.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/239qMVX) board members Tuesday night allowed to die without comment a motion to approve a contract with health-care subcontractor Medical Analysis, then moved on to their next agenda item.

Medical Analysis’ proposal was to replace the district’s six RNs with three RNs, three LPNs and a floating nurse practitioner, a change that would have saved the district money.

The school board will revisit the issue at its June 27 meeting.
