Tangipahoa School Superintendent Melissa Stilley spoke last night about an annual review of the district’s efforts in the longstanding Joyce Marie Moore desegregation case that she described as favorable. She said negotiations were going well and district leaders remain optimistic the case was inching closer to a resolution. In a report filed by the federal court’s compliance officer, Donald Massey positively outlined all that’s being done to resolve it. Stilley said the 44-page annual report is the latest piece in a series of good reports the district has offered the public on the more than 50-year-old case. In his report, Massey said all involved are optimistic that there may be a formal proposal in the form of a proposed consent judgment to present to the Court in the near future. He also said in a short period of time, relative to the age of the case, the nature and tone of the interactions among the parties has largely shifted from combative too collaborative.
