The West Point Board of Selectmen originally planned to appoint three members to the new West Point Consolidated School board at its meeting Tuesday night, but those plans fell through.
The State of Mississippi passed legislation in 2013 to consolidate the West Point and Clay County School Districts into the new school district, with three members appointed by the city board and two elected by the county.
