MDE Regional Literacy Meetings for Families – Location Change for Nov. 2 Natchez Meeting

The Mississippi Department of Education announces a series of regional meetings across the state for families of students in kindergarten through grade 3.  At the meetings, families will receive an overview of the state law concerning literacy and assessment, as well as strategies that can be used at home to help students improve their reading skills.  The state law, known as the Literacy-Based Promotion Act (LBPA), focuses on prevention and intervention to help children develop the reading skills required for 4th grade.  Family engagement is also a critical component of students’ reading success.

NOTE: The Natchez Family Night scheduled for  November 2 has been moved from Frazier Elementary to McLaurin Elementary School. 

Session times at all locations: 6 – 7 p.m.

No registration is required.
