Our Values: The tpsd way

The foundation of our success, for our students and our school system,
is rooted in our One Single Heartbeat Core Values
and these values define the Tupelo Public School District Way!


One Single Heartbeat is who we are, what we stand for, how we treat each other, what we prioritize, and what guiding principles we live by as members of the Tupelo Public School District family. We are engaged, diverse, purposeful, innovative and focused.

These core values define who we are as a district, individually and collectively, when we are at our best.
