MCS Mask Mandate - Updated 1.7.22
The MCS Board of Education believes that at this time it is best that all faculty, staff, and students go back to wearing masks and practicing social distancing. The rise in the number of cases in our system and the closing of several systems near us have given us reasons to support this decision. The required mask mandate will begin Monday, January 10th, and continue until further notice.
Thank you and may God bless your family.
Alabama Literacy Act At Home Plan
Our district has developed an At Home Plan to support parents with activities they can do at home to improve reading proficiency. Increasing proficiency requires strong partnerships between schools and families. This is one way we are attempting to provide seamless support for our students. Paper copies of this plan will be sent home in the coming week to all students in grades one through three that are at-risk and have a Student Reading Improvement Plan. Parents, please take some time to peruse the plan and identify a few activities that you can do daily with your student. The work will pay off. If you have any questions, you may contact your child's teacher.

January 2022 is Gifted Education Month. GEM aims to bring awareness and importance of Gifted Education and the dire need for the program to be fully funded in Alabama.
“Giftedness” is defined in Alabama as “Intellectually gifted children and youth are those who perform or who have demonstrated the potential to perform at high levels in academic or creative fields when compared with others of their age, experience, or environment.” Alabama is home to over 62,000 Gifted students, who can be found in all populations and across all economic strata. Gifted Education is mandated in Alabama but is not fully funded. In fact, Alabama is one of the lowest funded Southern states. Alabama school districts must use local funds to identify and provide the required services to eligible students, which are not ordinarily provided by regular school programs.
A fully funded mandate will:
- Arrange for a universal screening/assessment for gifted identification Raise student achievement
- Decrease Gifted students’ dropout
- Decrease student exodus
- Increase leadership potential
- Increase job creations
- Increase innovativeness and creativity
- Employ certified Gifted Education Specialists
- Provide training: preservice, classroom teachers, and administrators
To better serve Alabama’s Gifted students, contact Congresswoman Terri Sewell urging her to support a full funding of Gifted Education.
