Superintendent Of LCSD Spoke At Meridian Rotary Club Meeting
Today in Meridian, the superintendent of the Lauderdale County School District was the guest speaker at the Rotary Club of Meridian’s meeting, addressing concerns they may have about this upcoming school year.
At the meeting, Superintendent Dr. John-Mark Cain stated that the Lauderdale County School District’s return to learn plan is not set in stone as the district continues to receive guidance from the Mississippi State Department of Health. He also gave insight on some of the changes implemented at district schools, such as three new nurses being hired, and students will be screened before school each day. Additionally, he explained that the first 2 weeks of school, where the district will be following its soft launch plan, will be used as an opportunity for staff to observe and implement more changes in order to accommodate new challenges presented.
“I think what we were able to do today is kind of let people know why our plan is the way that it is, why we’re choosing to do it that way, and the challenge that we’ve got ahead, you know. We’re going to be dependent on data and the advice we receive from medical professionals and throughout the course of the year. We have a school calendar, we have a plan, but you know those things can change based on the conditions on the ground,” said Dr. John Mark-Cain.
Schools within the Lauderdale County School District will be holding on-campus registration for students for the 2020-2021 school year on July 22, 27 and 29 from 12pm-7pm, and parents are currently able to register their students online until July 29.
