Rankin County School District
Smart Restart Plan
2021-2022 School Year

Updated: 8/2/21

After consulting the updated Mississippi Department of Health guidelines, the RCSD has updated the Smart Restart plan. The Rankin County School District will begin the school year with all students returning to traditional face-to-face learning with enhanced hygiene and disinfection protocols. (There will be no CHOICE virtual learning option.) ***If a student has a rare and serious extenuating health circumstance that prevents all public contact, there may be a consideration for alternate services. These will be limited. For more information visit

*The RCSD will continue to monitor and adjust plans for the health and safety of our students and employees throughout the school year. We will consult the guidance from the Mississippi Department of Health and will follow Governor Executive Orders as decisions are made.

**The RCSD Smart Restart Plan will be updated periodically throughout the school year, as needed. Public comment will be taken into consideration. Public comments can be emailed to
