Strong Readers, Strong Leaders 2023-2024

The Office of Elementary Education and Reading is responsible for supporting and training K-3rd grade teachers, curriculum specialists and other educators by providing research-based instructional strategies on literacy and guidance on the implementation of the Literacy-Based Promotion Act. Passed during the 2013 legislative session, the Literacy-Based Promotion Act (LBPA) places an emphasis on grade-level reading skills, particularly as students' progress through grades K-3. Beginning in the 2014-2015 school year, a student scoring at the lowest achievement level in reading on the established state-wide assessment for 3rd grade will not be promoted to 4th grade unless the student qualifies for a good cause exemption.

About Us

The Brookhaven School District, where we are “Equipping Students Today for Tomorrow’s Opportunities”, strives year after year to complete a child’s education with the highest of standards. An education that begins with excellent facilities throughout its seven-school system. Many renovations at all of the schools have taken place over the years, including a $13 million renovation and expansion project at Brookhaven High School in 2001. The high school, originally built in 1938, is recognized by the Mississippi Department of Archives as true to its Art Deco design and houses one of the most advanced sound and lighting systems of any high school auditorium in Mississippi.
