TPSS Granted Provisional Unitary Status

Provisional Unitary Status Granted

A new chapter in the Tangipahoa Parish School System begins Wednesday, as district leaders received word that the federal court has granted them provisional unitary status in one of the country’s last-remaining school desegregation cases.

U.S. Eastern District Court Judge Ivan Lemelle signed Document 1661, a court document declaring provisional unitary status to the Tangipahoa Parish School System in its longstanding and landmark federal desegregation suit, Joyce Marie Moore v. TPSS, which dates back to 1965.
