Traditional Public

Traditional public schools are tax-funded, tuition-free schools overseen by a local school district and an elected school board. Most students in Mississippi attend traditional public schools and are typically assigned to these schools based upon where they live, though students who wish to attend schools in other districts may request to transfer.

  • To transfer between districts, students must submit transfer requests to both school boards for approval. You can find transfer request forms on your school district website or by contacting your school district.
