Parents and Community Members,

In today’s public release of state test scores, the Meridian Public School District is labeled

SUCCESSFUL!!!

WE DID IT!!!!

Please help me thank our students, teachers, administrators, and staff for all of the time, effort, and energy that they put into making this district SUCCESSFUL. The students and city of Meridian are better because of their hard work and dedication. We would also like to thank you - the parents and community members. We truly appreciate your belief in our district and your support!

It is hard to imagine that just one year ago, we were a district with a QDI score of 126 and labeled “low performing.” What a difference a year makes!

My strategy is that, at this time next year, we are looking back saying I can’t believe it was just a year ago that we were a 139 because we have come so far! I know that we can continue to improve and, once again, become one of the top districts in the state of Mississippi.

MPSD has the best students, teachers, administrators, and staff, and, now, you can truly see that we are successfully educating the students of Meridian.

We are going to continue the hard work this year, so continue to Believe in Blue!

Thank you again for your contribution to such a successful year,
Dr. Taylor
