Sunflower School No Longer Needs Literacy Coaches

SUNFLOWER COUNTY, MS (Ben Caxton) — Nine Mississippi schools, including one in the Delta, no longer need support from literacy coaches.

They work with teachers and school leaders to improve instructional strategies to advance literacy and academic goals.

James Elementary and 8 other schools have shown sustained academic improvements and no longer need coaching support
