Literacy-Based Promotion Act Impact Study – K-3 Teacher Survey (Complete by 12/14/18)

Greetings Principals:

The Mississippi Department of Education is participating in a policy impact study on the Literacy-Based Promotion Act (LBPA). This study is being conducted by RMC Research Corporation for the Foundation for Excellence in Education.

The survey responses will be anonymous and can be completed in about 5 to 8 minutes. The link is:

Because the holiday season is fast approaching, the MDE is asking that you complete this request within the next two weeks (Dec. 4 – 14).
