McNair Jr. High School replaced Davis Hills and Ed White middle Schools. JO Johnson will close after this year and students will attend Jemison High School.

The 2015 list of failing schools included the now closed SR Butler High School, JO Johnson High School, James Dawson Elementary School, Lakewood Elementary School, and Westlawn Middle School.
