Mississippi Succeeds Listening Tour

Beginning Aug. 29, the Mississippi Department of Education will be connecting with stakeholders statewide to gather their feedback on the types of changes they would like to see that would better inform them on whether students and their schools are successful. The MDE will use this feedback to develop a comprehensive state plan to comply with the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), the federal law that replaces No Child Left Behind. For more information about ESSA, click here.
