We appreciate the Jones County Board of Education’s efforts to consider strategies that can support staff who are working hard to keep schools operating and education continuing in the classroom for approximately 1,100 students. The Jones County Board of Education has approved Friday, November 12 as a non-instructional day for students and a remote workday for staff. With Friday, November 12 ‘Wellness Day’ occurring in between the November 11 Veterans Day holiday and a weekend, staff and students would be able to enjoy a four day break to refresh themselves prior to testing.

After completing this course, I believe the optimum way to close the equity opportunity gap is for stakeholders in the school building, community, along with business and industry to perform equity audits and use data as a measurement. Equity audits will show opportunities to improve the culture, students' grades, and community, which will display any deficiency. Dr. Terrance Green stated, "It's not enough just to critique and oppose but one also needs to create and propose." I created an action plan to assist those who need to overcome any barriers when it comes to equity in education. In my reflections from, Dr. Brandi Hinnant Crawford, PHD- "Cultivating Relevant Responsive Sustaining Classroom to Ensure Opportunities to Learn book, she stated, "Good pedagogy (edification, guidance, indoctrination, instruction) can decrease opportunity gaps." We can close any opportunity gap when lesson plans are strategically implemented with all students in mind. I encourage all educators to invest in themselves and sign up for this course.
