Ensuring that Mississippi’s educational system stays strong


There are many reasons Mississippi’s public school leaders should register for the MASS/Alliance Summer Convention at Beau Rivage. For starters, that’s where we plan to hold a “Beyond COVID-19” conversation to explore issues, concerns and next steps for school districts.

By this time, we’re experiencing high-than-usual levels of stress and fatigue related to the ongoing pandemic. But planning for the future is a responsibility that requires our undivided focus and energy, especially at a time when so much is being demanded of students, teachers and families to keep academic journeys on track.

MASS is in the process of building a productive agenda for the Summer Convention to help us move forward. As always, our conventions are great for networking with colleagues, sharing ideas and best practices, and gaining a broader perspective of the challenges and opportunities facing Mississippi’s public schools.

It goes without saying that health and safety will be top priorities. Our locale will provide ample space for social distancing, and participants will be required to wear masks and observe other virus-prevention protocols.

While our program is still coming together, we’ve posted a preliminary agenda at Note that superintendents should plan to arrive Sunday, July 11, and Alliance members should arrive Tuesday, July 13.

We hope that as many administrators and Alliance members as possible from your districts will be able to benefit from attending the Summer Convention.

July will be here before you know it, so register soon!


Let’s finish strong!
