    • LIFT (1)

      Leaders & Intelligent Futuristic Thinkers

      liftDoveThe LIFT program has been a leader in the state in special instruction for exceptional learners for 25 years. This commitment to quality programming for gifted and talented learners continues the unwavering efforts of community and staff.

      The program is a living entity. It grows and changes with the interests, abilities and needs of the learner. The success of the LIFT program may be judged by its products, young adults who are leaders and intelligent futuristic thinkers.


      Moss Point’s LIFT Program is based on the belief that intellectually gifted students are exceptional individuals who need learning experiences beyond those typically offered in the general education program if they are to realize their full potential, both for personal fulfillment and for the subsequent benefit of society.

      No Student, including one who is gifted, should be denied the right to an education that is specifically designed to aid him/her in the development of his/her maximum potential.


      Our mission is to help students reach the goal of metacognition by providing learning experiences through self-motivated discovery of new ideas and solutions, and to instill in each student an intense love of learning that makes him or her a lifelong learner.

      Student Referral Process

      A student may be referred by a teacher, counselor, administrator, parent, peer, self, or anyone else having reason to believe that the student may be intellectually gifted. A completed referral packet must be submitted to the Local Survey Team for review. Criteria for testing must be met and parental permission for testing must be granted, before a student can be assessed for placement into the LIFT program. The Local Survey Committee determines whether a student meets the criteria for testing. After a student has been tested by a licensed examiner, a letter from the district office is sent to parents to inform them of an eligible or ineligible ruling. If a student is eligible for placement into the program, a conference is held with the LIFT teacher and the parent. Written parental permission must be obtained before a child can be placed in the program. Procedures outlined in the programming policy must be followed in order to remove a student from the gifted program.

      District-Wide Screening Procedures

      Each year a district-wide screening of all first grade students (and any other students recommended because of a display of gifted characteristics) is conducted. The district-wide testing instrument that is currently being used is the Ravens. Students that score 85% or above on the Ravens screening must have a referral packet completed, in order for the identification process to continue. Participation in the Gifted Program is an entitlement under State Law (Mississippi Gifted Education Act of 1989, Mississippi Code Sections 37-23-181). Once a student is determined eligible in the State of Mississippi, no re-evaluation testing is required to remain in the program. An eligible determination is accepted by all school districts within the State of Mississippi. However, a student moving to Mississippi with a gifted eligibility from another state must satisfy the criteria established in Mississippi.

      The Moss Point School Board's Role and Responsibility

      Mr. Henry P. Pate - Board Attorney
      Henry P. Pate
      Board Attorney

      The constitution of the State of Mississippi requires the legislature to provide a system of free schools wherein all children of the state can receive an education. Accordingly, education is a state function and each school district is a political subdivision of the state.

      The Moss Point School District Board of Education recognizes the importance of quality public education to the community and its people. The board holds sacred its responsibilities to act in good faith as the public trustees of the school district. The board recognizes its accountability to the community for providing quality educational programs for all children and using wisely its human and financial resources. Likewise, the board believes it is responsible for vigorously supporting and adequately funding all services, programs, and operations within reasonable fiscal constraints. The Board, through its actions and delegation of authority, governs the school district as a policy-making board in compliance with accreditation standards of the State and Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
