Literacy-Based Promotion Act Communication Resources

The MDE has updated and added resources to the Literacy-Based Promotion Act Communication Toolkit and the family-friendly Strong Leaders=Strong Leaders website to help districts and schools communicate with families and communities about the expectations of Mississippi’s K-3 literacy law. The toolkit includes an updated sample letter to parents that emphasizes that 3rd graders need to reach a higher benchmark starting this school year to qualify for promotion to 4th grade.

We encourage you to adapt these resources to your needs and share them with your community to ensure they are informed about the higher expectations for students.
