Board Meetings


The Tishomingo County School District recently missed 5 school days due to inclement weather and unsafe road conditions. The District will use February 19, 2018 (Presidents’ Day), and April 2, 2018 (Good Monday), as make up days to gain instructional time before end-of-year assessments.  School will be in session on these days. March 19, 2018 will remain a professional development day.  Staff will attend school that day, but students will not. The other 3 days that were missed will be forgiven due to authority given to the superintendent and school board in district policy and state statute. If any additional days are missed, changes to this plan may occur.

Tishomingo County School District Prepares for the High Schools 1:1 iPad Initiative

In anticipation of the 1:1 iPad Initiative, Tishomingo County School District has partnered with Apple in preparing its staff for implementation. A Senior Specialist from Apple Professional Learning spent October 4th at Belmont High School, October 5th at TCHS, and October 6th at the District Office preparing teachers and administrators for the iPad rollout.

Teacher training focused on SAMR Model and Culture of Learning through engaging activities that model meaningful technology integration. The trainings also focused on developing skills in Keynote, Numbers, and Creativity/Productivity with the iPad. Administrator training was geared toward best practices, school level support and enhancing productivity skills.

In an effort to ensure successful utilization, Mrs. Kristy Counce attended Apple Academy training in Cupertino, CA in July and received the certification of Apple Learning Specialist that allows her to train with Malika, who will be working within our district for 20 days this year. The district will continue teacher training and support throughout this process.
