Moss Point School District gets aggressive for better grades

MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) - The Moss Point School District is going on the offensive for better grades.

A big question: Can the district improve on a "D" score by the Mississippi Department of Education from last year? Superintendent Dr. Shannon Vincent says yes.

Parents and district employees came to hear Vincent's game plan Thursday night for improvement in what she says was an effort at transparency. While not shying away from the problems, Vincent says there have been across-the-board improvements; with reading improvement is the biggest challenge

Vincent laid out five overall goals for growth, but they all require hard work.

"This is a sense of urgency," Vincent said. "There is no time for anything but good teaching and good learning. We call it Team No Time. You really don't have time to waste. We have to capitalize on every single minute of every single day in order for students to grow."

Testing for the next Mississippi Department of Education's assessment will be April and May. Results will be released in the fall.
