Along with Quitman County, the Durant School Board also adopted the CHART policy last night (4/10). Durant is the first of the two districts in Holmes County (P1) to adopt the policy. This is also the 15th CHART school district!
The Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) has reached out to all Priority 1 school districts to provide information about the funding and implementation of CHART. P1 districts have 30 days to adopt the policy and sign a memorandum of understanding with MSDH. After that deadline, funding for CHART implementation will be available for all school districts on a first come-first served basis, depending on when school boards adopt the policy.
More districts to come.
