The Mississippi Department of Education is soliciting feedback from students, staff, families, and public school alumni to enhance its understanding of perceptions of students’ college and career readiness. The survey is brief and should take no more than about fifteen minutes to complete. All information will be maintained on a confidential basis.
We ask that you disseminate the survey link to your stakeholders and encourage them to provide us their feedback no later than January 31, 2021. The more responses we receive, the greater the data we will have available to ensure students’ leave high school college, and career-ready.
The board approved for all students to return to virtual instruction beginning Friday, January 22 through February 1. All staff, with the exception of A W Watson, will report to their worksite at their regularly scheduled time. Staff members at A W Watson will telework during this period and the school will be closed to staff and the public. Hybrid instruction will resume on February 2 for all school sites. Meals will continue to be delivered during the time of virtual learning in the same manner.
