Shelby County Schools - SCS

A message from Superintendent Dr. Joris M. Ray on the school closure:

"Good Afternoon SCS Family,

Today, Governor Bill Lee announced his recommendation to close schools in Tennessee for the remainder of the school year due to the ongoing pandemic. Shelby County Schools shares Governor Lee’s concerns and caution to guard the health of students, teachers, and families during this pandemic. This morning, we released our “Roadmap to Continuous Learning.” Our team has worked diligently over the last several weeks to develop these strategies, and just as we have since I announced the closure of the District on March 12, 2020, our focus remains on keeping students safe and providing learning opportunities that meet their academic and social emotional needs. We will be offering more guidance about employee expectations as we move forward and finalize our long-term plans for the year. The District will remained closed as we work remotely until further notice. We are encouraging parents to keep their children engaged using our comprehensive learning guides/workbooks and instructional supports. We are stronger together. Coronavirus will not defeat us! We are 901!
Sincerely,

Dr. Joris M. Ray,
Superintendent"
