MPSD Overview

  • Core Values

    The Meridian Public School District strives to:

    • Maintain safe and orderly environments that model respect, integrity, and accountability

    • Relentlessly pursue reading and math literacy to enhance academic excellence

    • Use college and career standards to guide inquiry into innovative learning and teaching

    • Foster citizenship and promote strong moral values through quality educational programs

    • Actively create learner-centered classrooms that foster ownership of student learning

    • Empower families to join their students in goal-setting and reviewing progress toward their goals


    Core Beliefs

    We believe as MPSD leaders and teachers that:

    • Each student sets goals, monitors his/her progress, and makes adjustments to achieve academic and life goals

    • Each student will learn what is important to know and do under the appropriate instructional conditions to be successful

    • Teachers motivate through high expectations and positive caring relationships by knowing each student deeply, and sharing relevant life experiences

    • Teachers, as active collaborators, continuously monitor the impact of their teaching on student learning using assessment data

    • Teachers and leaders work together to protect and use instructional time wisely, using data as the guide for student learning and achievement

    • Parents are partners in ensuring daily student attendance and active participation in student goal setting and monitoring of student progress


Strategic Plan

  • In 2017, with a mission of developing excellence in each student in a safe, innovative learning environment, the Meridian Public School District developed a strategic plan to shape our district over the three years. This plan will serve as a roadmap for how we create an environment where learners become leaders. The strategic plan outlines goals and strategies to prepare our students to reach their full potential.
