Make a positive, lasting impact in your community.
Tangipahoa Parish School System is calling on all Tangi businesses to join our mission of having every child in our parish read on level by the third grade. Currently, only 46.1% of the students in our parish are considered on-level for literacy. Each day, TPSS strives to increase that number.
As a Partner in Literacy, you have the opportunity to provide resources, support, and encouragement to the students in our parish, making a difference in their lives.
If you are a business owner in Tangipahoa Parish and are interested in becoming a Partner in Literacy, fill out the form below and a team member will contact you soon.
TPSS is on a mission to increase the literacy skills of our children!
Tangipahoa Parish School System aims to find creative, innovative, and encouraging ways to provide more literacy exposure to our elementary age children. We are committed to helping our local businesses discover the best ways that they can make the largest impacts on nourishing the early literacy development of the children in our community.
