MERIDIAN — While each new school year is filled with great expectations, this will be even more so for students across Mississippi in the 2014-15 academic year due to the statewide implementation of Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
"Our teachers and leaders are motivated, we have our game plan in place, we have our resources and our materials, and we're ready to go," said Meridian Public School District Superintendent Dr.
"We have accepted the challenge as a district, and we have prepared to be ready for it this year. I think we will be and I think we will do very well, " said Lauderdale County School District Superintendent Randy Hodges.
The Common Core State 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.
