Mississippi Literacy-Based Promotion Act
Passed during the 2013 legislative session, the Literacy-Based Promotion Act places an emphasis on grade-level reading skills, particularly as students’ progress through grades K-3. Beginning in the 2014-2015 school year, a student scoring at the lowest achievement level in reading on the established state-wide assessment for 3rd grade will not be promoted to 4th grade unless the student qualifies for a good cause exemption.
Mississippi Succeeds Report Cards
The Mississippi Statewide Accountability System is a single “A” through “F” school and district accountability system. Grades are based on student achievement, student growth, student participation in testing, and other academic measures. Every school and district has an overall accountability grade and score. The data include assessment, teacher, and environment data that gives an overview of school performance with the ability to link to more detailed data.
