Head Start suspended in six counties

Parents in six counties continue scrambling following the cancellation of Head Start classes.

WCBI-TV reports the abrupt halting of Head Start and early Head Start in Attala, Carroll, Choctaw, Holmes, Montgomery, and Webster counties.

Central Mississippi Incorporated has received a suspension as the program operator in these counties.

The new operator comes from Denver. It says it keeps working as quickly as possible to restore classes, but it must hire new staff, find new vendors, and receive state approval to run child care centers.

No one has explained the reason for the change.
