School heads reveal legislative priorities

Superintendents across the state are pushing for more literacy coaches, programs to attract teachers to critical need areas and improved school infrastructure, among a slew of other requests to lawmakers.

The Mississippi Association of School Superintendents on Wednesday unveiled 24 legislative priorities, broken down into three categories: instruction, quality leadership and facilities and technology.

Although most of the initiatives would require funding, no mention is made of the Mississippi Adequate Education Program or specific amounts of money.
