Reminder: Hybrid Scheduling Option Ends October 31, 2021

In-Person and Virtual Learning
The Mississippi State Board of Education (SBE) set two policies that call for all school districts to resume in-person instruction as the primary mode of teaching starting in the 2021-22 school year. The policies set requirements for districts that choose to offer a virtual learning option to individual students and establish standards for virtual learning days. On August 19, 2021, the SBE voted to allow school districts to use hybrid scheduling through October 31, 2021, if needed, to minimize the spread of COVID-19. Hybrid scheduling enables districts to reduce the number of students in schools each day by scheduling a portion of students to learn online. The hybrid scheduling option will end on October 31, 2021.
