GREENVILLE, Miss. (AP) - A Mississippi school district is trying to improve the academic ratings of several schools.

The Delta Democrat-Times reports that the Greenville Public School District has some schools D and F ratings - the lowest on a state grading scale.

Administrators told school board members last week that different teaching techniques are being tried on some campuses.

Trigg Elementary School is trying to go from an F rating to a C. Principal Betty Johnson says teachers are using a “multi-sensory” approach to phonics, which includes hand gestures and noises to help children learn to read words and build sentences.

Greenville High School is trying to move from a D rating to a C. It offers tutoring sessions before, during and after school.
