Jefferson County School District is continually monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak in the United States. Jefferson County School District is working with the Mississippi Department of Health (MSDH), the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency (MEMA), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding preventive measures and the response to COVID-19. The Jefferson County School District will support learning activities in the home. This web page will be updated as new information becomes available. The district will ensure that all students have equal access to the learning and required materials. Supports identified on a student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) will be provided.
*Taking a traditional school environment online is not a simple task – nor is it one that has been attempted without serious consideration of the practicality and risk.
