In June 2020, the Mississippi Department of Education proposed three types of schedules for school districts to consider for re-opening in August 2020.

Those three options are defined as:

Traditional Schedule: Requires students to be physically present in school with scheduling modifications to follow CDC and Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) recommendations.

Hybrid: Combines online and face-to-face instruction for students. Schools must meet distance learning requirements.

Virtual Learning: Instruction provided exclusively through distance learning. May also be called “digital learning” or “online learning.”

Although every school district is selecting one of the three options above, re-opening plans vary widely from district to district. A “plan” may be presented as a public letter, a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs), and/or a multi-page, detailed document. Make sure to check back with your district regularly; they are updating their plans often as circumstances change. 

Mississippi First will update our spreadsheet daily throughout July. This is a working document. If you see an error in the sheet or have an update to a district plan, please email MacKenzie Hines at mackenzie@mississippifirst.org and we will update the sheet.
