 Welcome to the Office of Federal Programs and Curriculum. We serve the employees and students of the Jefferson Davis County School District in many ways.  Some of our responsibilities are:

    • Administration of federal programs including Title I, Title II, Title IV and Title V
    • Purchasing supplemental instructional resources 
  • What are Mississippi College- and Career-Ready Standards (MCCRS)?

The Mississippi College- and Career-Ready Standards Initiative is a state-led effort that established a single set of clear educational standards for kindergarten through 12th grade in English language arts and mathematics that states voluntarily adopt. The standards are designed to ensure that students graduating from high school are prepared to enter credit-bearing entry courses in two-year or four-year college programs or enter the workforce. The standards ensure that parents, teachers, and students have a clear understanding of the expectations in reading, writing, speaking and listening, language and mathematics in school, and they put students on a level playing field regardless of their ZIP code.

 Access the standards for each academic content area here:  Mississippi College and Career Ready Standards
