JACKSON  (AP) — A total of 18 Mississippi public school districts, including Natchez-Adams and Jefferson County school districts, have been put on probation for breaking state rules.

The Jackson school district, which remains at risk of a state takeover, is also on the list.

The state School Accreditation Commission on Tuesday approved the probation list. Of the districts, 13 were cited for teachers or professional staff who lack the correct state licenses, meaning they are either unlicensed or are working outside the fields for which they are licensed.
