HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

On Wednesday the Mississippi Department of Education's Office of Accreditation released its report on school districts with deficiencies resulting in probation. 

The report, approved by the Commission on School Accreditation, lists districts with deficiencies on record from the 2016-2017 school year, resulting in a probation status for the 2017-2018 school year. Included in the list of districts on probation is the Wayne County School District. 

According to the report, deficiencies on record for Wayne County School District are "maintenance of school district facilities" and "school safety plan and implementation." 

"Wayne County School District was in violation of Standard 30 due to a malfunctioning fire alarm system at Wayne County High School," Deputy Superintendent of Wayne County School district Tyrone Marshall said in an email. "This issue has been addressed, parts ordered and will be corrected on October 30, 2017.  The company who originally installed this system is no longer in business therefore we had to locate another company out of state that would come inspect the system."
