APA Listserv Signup

Section 25-43-3.103 of the Mississippi Code provides requirements for proper filing with the Secretary of State for publication in the Administrative Bulletin.  Beginning March 1, 2015, the Mississippi Department of Education (MDE) will no longer provide courtesy notification of APA submissions.  In order to receive notice of Board approved APA filings, all interested parties will need to make an official request to the MDE by registering your email address with the MDE APA listserv.  Only those who have properly registered will receive notice of agency APA submissions within three (3) days after proper filing with the Secretary of State’s Office.
