Mississippi colleges told to prep for in-person classes
A governing board is asking leaders of Mississippi’s eight public universities to prepare for at least some classes on campus during the fall semester, even amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The state college board adopted a resolution Thursday that directs the schools to offer as many in-person classes as possible.
It says they should follow health guidelines from federal and state officials.
The Commissioner of Higher Education Alfred Rankins Jr. says the goal is to provide “the best academic experience in the safest manner possible.”
