TPSD makes changes to its graduation policy

By NEMS Daily Journal

TUPELO – The Tupelo Public School District made a change to its graduation policy on Tuesday that will allow some students to graduate with fewer than the 26 credits the district currently requires.
Students in the district’s alternative programs will be able to graduate this spring with 24 credits. Those students also will be able to graduate with 21 credits if their parents chose to opt out of certain requirements.
