The goal of the Sunflower County Consolidated School District is to ensure that every student has access to a rigorous instructional program required for college and career readiness. As indicated in the District’s Beliefs and Vision statement, increasing student achievement is the primary goal. The Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment department is committed to meeting the district’s instructional goal. The Curriculum department prepares a standards-based curriculum that is aligned to the Mississippi Essential Knowledge. A common standards-based curriculum guarantees that every SCCSD teacher will have access to the resources necessary to plan, teach, and assess instruction and student learning effectively.
