Ensuring that Mississippi’s educational system stays strong


One thing we’ve learned in the past year is that public schools are a stabilizing force that provides structure and continuity for students, families and communities across the nation. When schools are removed from the equation, society starts to break down.

Educators know this better than anyone. That’s why we’ve been working so hard to make sure our schools create safe, welcoming and nurturing environments — both in-person and virtual — to provide students with the resources and support they need to succeed.

As schools prepare for statewide testing, many parts of Mississippi continue dealing with outbreaks of COVID-19 — a reminder that we cannot let our guard down at this point in the game.

How school district leadership teams address end-of-year issues will be crucial. To finish the school year strong — and build positive momentum for the next school year — health and wellness for stakeholders at all levels must be our top priority. That’s the only way we can move forward and put the pandemic in the rear-view mirror.

It goes without saying that getting vaccinated, and promoting the benefits of vaccinations in your community, are important responsibilities for school leaders, and all leaders.

Let’s finish strong!
