Meridian Public Schools hosted its new teacher orientation Tuesday. The new district employees are being asked, not only to be ready for school to start Monday, but also be excited about the new school year.
"We're giving the teachers information regarding their benefits, the district processes, and the initiatives of the district so that when they go to school and start their first day on Aug. 24, they won't be lost in the district. They'll have as much information as possible so that they can maneuver the district and have a good day on their first day," said Muriel Sutton.
Many schools have already begun the 2009-2010 school year. The first day back for students is Aug. 27.
