ESSA Waiver Input

Dear Parents:

The Corinth School District is committed to improving our schools and providing a high-quality education for your children.  As you are aware, as part of our District of Innovation status,  the Corinth School District has implemented the Cambridge Assessment International Program.  Our students have achieved success in this program and on the associated course examinations. 

The Corinth School District will be submitting a waiver request to the Mississippi Department of Education and the U. S. Department of Education to allow us to substitute selected Cambridge examinations in lieu of the required Mississippi high school assessments.  We would like to share information with you about our request and give you a meaningful opportunity to provide input in this process. 

The following forums will be held to allow you to provide input:


August 15, 2019         8:00 a.m.                     Corinth School District Central Office          

August 16, 2019         12:00 p.m.                   Corinth School District Central Office

August 19, 2019         6:00 p.m.                     Corinth High School Auditorium

August 22, 2019         6:00 p.m.                     Corinth High School Auditorium


In an increased effort to solicit input,  we will receive written comments either by mail or email.
