The Mississippi Education Achievement Council will meet at 1:30 p.m.on Thursday, September 26, in the IHL Board Room, 3825 Ridgewood Road, Jackson, MS 39211. Some members may participate via teleconference. 

The purpose of this meeting is to consider adoption of recommendations from the State Financial Aid Study Committee.  Adoption of the MCCB and IHL report cards will also be on the agenda.
