Lauderdale County Schools hosts convocation

MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - The Lauderdale County School District had its annual convocation Tuesday morning.

Administrators and teachers heard from guest speaker, Dr. Sean Cain. He's the author of the book, Fundamental 5: The Formula for Quality Instruction, which employees have been reading.

Director of curriculum, Sandy Reid, says having someone of this caliber come to speak to the district is pretty big.

"I'm extremely grateful for the opportunity to have someone like Sean Cain actually come and speak with us. So it's not just that we're reading the book but we're seeing this implemented in our classrooms every day," Red said. "We've been working on this all semester. And now that we have actually put a name and a face together, it helps bring that excitement."

Lauderdale County students are set to return to class for the new semester Wednesday morning.
