The public will have its first chance to offer input on the state’s school funding formula during a session at 4 p.m. Thursday at the Capitol.

Representatives from EdBuild, the New Jersey-based nonprofit hired by the legislative leadership to study and potentially rewrite the Mississippi Adequate Education Program, will be at the meeting. It will be held in Room 113 of the Mississippi State Capitol.

Speaker of the House Philip Gunn and Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves announced the public meeting in a press release Monday. According to the release, the meeting will be limited to one hour, and each public comment can be no more than three minutes.

Written recommendations are also being accepted and can be sent to [email protected].

The Senate and House Education Committee chairmen will conduct the meeting.
