TUPELO, Miss. (AP) - A Mississippi school district is setting aside the idea of creating a center for career and technical courses.

Lee County School District leaders looked at rearranging the way campuses are used in two communities, Verona and Plantersville. The idea was to consolidate some schools and use the current Verona Elementary campus as a hub for career courses, starting next academic year.

Superintendent Jimmy Weeks says there’s no feasible way to make the plan work. The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports that rearranging campuses would create crowding at every school.

Students from Verona and Plantersville go on to attend Shannon High School.
