June 23rd School Reopening Community Meeting Webinar

2020-21 Pre-K Application

Hybrid Reopening Model/Schedule

As promised, we are ready to announce that Tuesday, September 8th, will be the first day of school for the 2020-21 school year.

Additionally, we have decided to open school with a Hybrid Reopening Model/Schedule. Mondays and Wednesdays will be designated as A Days while Tuesdays and Thursdays will be designated as B Days. 

Half of district students will attend in-person on A Days and will participate in virtual learning at home on B Days. The other half of district students will attend in-person on B Days and will participate in virtual learning at home on A Days. 

Fridays will be designated as Virtual Days for all students. 

Specific details regarding how the Hybrid Model/Schedule will work will be shared at our next community update meeting which is scheduled for Thursday, July 9th at 6pm via zoom (change from 5:30pm). We will post the zoom link and provide a reminder leading up to July 9th. 

We now need your feedback on the two school calendar options which can be viewed using the link below. 

Both calendar options illustrate the selected hybrid model with a September 8th start date. Both calendar options also designate all school days in June as virtual. The major differences between Calendar A and Calendar B are the length of Thanksgiving and Winter breaks and the date for the last day of school. Dates for state testing, graduation, and other major district events have not yet been added. 

Please use the survey link below to select your preferred calendar option. The survey will close on July 15th.

Welcome to the Mississippi Achievement School District

A state law enacted in 2016 requires the Mississippi State Board of Education (SBE) to intervene in persistently failing school districts by placing the districts in a state-run Achievement School District (ASD). Districts that are rated “F” for two consecutive years or two out of three consecutive years, encompass 50% or more F-rated schools and/or have 50% or more of their students attending F-rated schools are subject to inclusion in the ASD. 

The SBE selected Humphreys County and Yazoo City to form the first Achievement School District, which will serve a total of 4,065 students, 1647 from Humphreys County and 2,418 from Yazoo City. Jermall Wright, Ed.D. serves as superintendent of Mississippi’s first Achievement School District.
