ACCELERATED LEARNING OPTIONS

Mississippi law establishes the Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science, a residential school for 11th and 12th grade students, for the purpose of educating the gifted and talented students of the state. Beginning with the 2007-2008 school year, all school districts must offer at least one Advanced Placement course in each of the four core areas of math, English, science and social studies. School districts must also offer pre-AP courses, and in 2007-2008, funding will be made available so that all sophomores will take an examination that measures the students' ability to succeed in an AP course. In addition, state law allows a local school board, the Board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning, and the State Board for Community and Junior Colleges to establish a dual enrollment system under which students in the school district may enroll in a postsecondary institution. A qualified dually enrolled high school student must be allowed to earn an unlimited number of postsecondary credits as long as a "B" average is earned on the first two approved dual credit courses. If a "B" average is not maintained after the completion of the student's first two dual credit courses, the student may not continue in the dual credit program. A dual credit academic instructor must have, at a minimum, a master's degree with at least 18 graduate semester hours in the instructor's field of expertise. The boards of trustees of the community and junior college districts have recommended admission requirements for dual enrollment students, including a minimum 3.0 grade point average on a 4.0 scale and a recommendation letter from a high school principal or guidance counselor. Mississippi law also created the Tech-Prep Fund for implementation of Tech-Prep programs in grades seven through 12 and in the public community and junior colleges in the state. (Last updated 2008)

ADULT LEARNERS

In 1993, Mississippi state statute (Miss. Code Ann. 37-35-1) authorized and directed the State Board for Community and Junior Colleges to create and implement an adult basic education program. Effective July 1, 1999, state statute (Miss. Code Ann. 37-35-3) required that all state-funded industrial training programs and postsecondary adult short-term training programs be administered by the State Board for Community and Junior Colleges (they had formerly been administered by the Mississippi Department of Education). The State Board of Education is authorized to develop and establish special education and skill training programs to fill specific employment opportunities in areas of the state that have both employment opportunities and able-bodied unemployed and underemployed groups of adults, with priority to be given to unemployed adults. This program is usually administered by the Division of Vocational and Technical Education in community/junior colleges and sometimes in secondary school systems wherever practical. Mississippi statute (Miss. Code Ann. 37-153-11) stipulates that as of July 1, 2012, workforce development centers are to be affiliated with a separate public community or junior college district. Basic literacy skills training, high school equivalency education, and short-term skills training for adults are some of the services to be offered in these workforce development centers. Statute (Miss. Code Ann. 37-4-11) also requires that the State Board for Community and Junior Colleges prepare and submit an annual report on program activities, adult participation, and results to the Mississippi Legislature. Until 2016, employers can receive a tax credit for providing basic skills training or retraining programs. (Last updated 2013).

ARTICULATION, TRANSFER, AND ALIGNMENT

In 1991, the Board of Trustees of the Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning (IHL) along with the Mississippi State Board for Community and Junior Colleges (SBCJC) voluntarily created a statewide articulation agreement, which is essentially a regularly updated list of transferable courses from community and junior colleges to all IHL institutions. The IHL's director of P-20 initiatives relations oversees the agreement, including coordination of activities, communication with stakeholders, and dissemination of updated information related to transfer in the state. Course equivalencies are defined by a Statewide Articulation Sub-committee on an annual basis and are communicated through the websites of the IHL, the SBCJC, and the universities and community colleges. Transfer advisors at the state's universities and community colleges are updated on any relevant changes to the agreement. The SBJC has also established a common course numbering system among Mississippi's 15 public community college districts to better facilitate transfer to four-year institutions. Additionally, in 2010 the IHL Board adopted a system-wide policy whereby each IHL university will accept for transfer the associate of arts degree from each Mississippi community/junior college.

FINANCE

The goal of the Board of Trustees of the Institutions of Higher Learning is to provide high quality programs at the institutions that are affordable, accessible, and accountable. The Board's general policy is that "tuition, fees and other student charges should be kept as low as possible consistent with the need to provide sufficient revenues to insure the provision of high quality programs." The Board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning and the boards of trustees of the community colleges and junior colleges are authorized to prescribe the amount of tuition and fees to be paid by resident and non-resident students attending the several state-supported institutions of higher learning and community colleges and junior colleges of the State of Mississippi. Residency is determined by 4 years of attendance at, and graduation from, a Mississippi high school. Each institution may also establish or waive participation/optional fees, but an annual report of these fees must be presented to the Board. The Board may waive tuition for students meeting certain eligibility criteria, defined by high school curriculum and financial need. (Prepared by the State Higher Education Executive Officers, 2008)

RESIDENCY

Residency is determined by the legislature. To qualify as a resident, a student must have established domicile in state for at least one continuous year prior to admission. If a dependent, the student's domicile is that of the parent(s). A student who attended a Mississippi high school for no less than four years and graduated shall be deemed a resident student for tuition purposes. Children of faculty or staff of any junior colleges or postsecondary institutions in the state may be classified as residents for the purpose of attendance at the institution where their parents are faculty or staff members. Active members of the United States military forces stationed in state, members of the Mississippi National Guard, and their spouses and dependents may be classified as residents. Finally, individuals without legal immigration status are classified as non-residents and are therefore not eligible for resident tuition rates. (Last updated 2008)

STUDENT FINANCIAL AID

The Mississippi Board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning administers a variety of state and federal student financial aid programs that are merit-based and need-based. The Higher Education Legislative Plan (HELP) is both need- and merit-based and provides tuition and fees payment for up to ten semesters for Mississippi residents who meet eligibility requirements. Additionally, this state has a Leveraging Educational Partnerships (LEAP) program grant for students who demonstrate substantial financial need. The Mississippi Resident Tuition Assistance Grant (MTAG) provides a monetary award for tuition and is merit based. This state also offers the merit-based Mississippi Eminent Scholars Grant (MESG) and several specialized grant and loan programs. For the 2005-2006 academic year, Mississippi appropriated 2,215 million for need-based aid and 20,100 million for non-need-based aid.

TEACHING QUALITY

Like many other states in the region, Mississippi has made great strides over the past decade to recruit and retain teachers in hard-to-staff schools and subjects in the state. Mississippi continued the effort in 2006 through passage of the Mississippi Education Reform Act, bringing about major changes to education policy in the state. The Act provided additional compensation for teachers employed in critical shortage areas and established a Mississippi performance-based pay plan to reward licensed education personnel at schools showing improvement in student test scores. The Act also provided additional base compensation for mentor teachers in middle schools with approved classroom management programs. In 2008, Mississippi continued its efforts to improve teaching quality by requiring the State Department of Education to conduct a study on establishing a career ladder opportunity program for assistant teachers. It also furthered its efforts to recruit and retain teachers by authorizing state matching funds for Teach for America-Delta and establishing a pilot program to promote the national Troops to Teachers Program in the public schools of the State assisting in the recruitment, licensure, referral, placement and compensation of military personnel interested in beginning a second career in public education as a teacher.
