Neighboring district to pilot new MDE program
While most school districts across Mississippi are teaching similar curriculum, there are three districts that have chosen to teach an innovative alternative pilot program offered in Mississippi for the first time in 2011.
Clarksdale, Corinth, and Gulfport school districts are piloting the State Board of Education (SBE)-approved Excellence for All model that uses a different more rigorous curriculum and assessment process. Excellence for All gives students more than one path to graduation, and in some cases, allows students to begin college level courses so they may get a head start on their next level of education.
