The member school districts of the East Mississippi Center for Educational Development have been working collaboratively with each other, local health officials, the Mississippi Department of Health, and the Center for Disease Control to plan for the safe opening of schools in the fall. The first priority for all schools will be the safety of students and staff. Schools have been actively planning for that since the closure began. Second to the health and safety of students and staff, schools have been focused on preparing to maintain the academic rigor that is necessary to prepare
our students for a bright future.
EMCED concentrates delivery of professional development services through a full range of regional offerings as well as in-district professional development sessions. All courses offer Continuing Education Units (CEU's) through Mississippi State University.
