Poplarville School District

The Poplarville School District is a public school district based in Poplarville, Mississippi (USA).

In addition to Poplarville, the district serves a large portion of rural Pearl River County.

History

Initially the Lumberton Public School District was to be dissolved as of July 1, 2019, with portions going to the Lamar County School District and the Poplarville Separate School District.[1] Lumberton was required to close due to Governor of Mississippi Phil Bryant signing Senate Bill 2500, which required consolidation, in 2016.[2] By 2018 the Lumberton and Lamar county districts chose to do a voluntary consolidation, effective July 1, 2018, where the entirety of Lumberton students would continue going to Lumberton school buildings operated by the Lamar district. Poplarville's school board as well as the Pearl River County Board sued to stop the voluntary merger so the school district could obtain a portion of the Lumberton district, but the lawsuit was dismissed.[3]
