Ensuring that Mississippi’s educational system stays strong


Across Mississippi, educators are starting a new school year like no other in modern history.

Superintendents have been working with their teams for months to prepare schools and districts to safely navigate the many challenges created by the pandemic. They've had to make difficult time- and resource-intensive decisions about the safest way to re-open schools while ensuring districts and communities have the technologies required to conduct virtual classes.

On top of these important responsibilities, superintendents are leading the way into the future by being the voice of encouragement, teamwork and optimism for teachers, students, parents and communities. By valuing communication and transparency, they are setting the stage for success despite the challenges they face on a daily basis.

MASS commends Mississippi's superintendents for rising to the occasion and making difficult but necessary decisions to keep their districts on track for the fall semester. We know they have at heart the best interest of students, teachers and staff.

We, at MASS, will continue doing our part to support our members in any way we can. Please reach out if you have questions, need help, have news or ideas to share with our membership…or if you just need to talk things through. We are here for you.
