As districts move to a learning at home model during school closures, we hope that families will continue to focus on student learning. We have compiled learning activities, example videos, and digital resources that are aligned with the Mississippi College-and Career-Readiness Standards to continue and reinforce your child's education. Parents and caregivers should promote good screen time practices when students are online continuing their studies, playing games, or socializing with friends and family.
