Ensuring that Mississippi’s educational system stays strong


This became a landmark year for education in Mississippi when the legislature passed the most significant teacher pay raise in three decades. Without question, it was a victory for all Mississippians.

Higher pay has always been central to MASS’s advocacy efforts, including our more recent Advance Mississippi and Unleash Possible initiatives. We know the future of Mississippi is tied to the success of our teachers, and raising pay is a key factor in making our state more competitive in recruiting, hiring and retaining a world-class teacher workforce.

As school district leaders, we also play pivotal roles in cultivating supportive environments for teachers and making sure Mississippi’s schools are prepared for the future. Our Summer Convention set for July 10-15 at Beau Rivage Resort will be an ideal opportunity to talk about the issues and challenges we’re facing as well as strategies to move our school districts forward.

I know the end of the school year is a particularly busy time for MASS members. If you haven’t registered yet, I encourage you to do so soon by visiting to reserve your place in Biloxi.

Special thanks to educators and administrators for working together to make the 2021-22 school year a success for public education in Mississippi. Because of you, we have a strong foundation on which to build for the future.
