TUPELO, MS (WLBT) - The Tupelo School District may provide classes and child care to school-aged mothers to get them back in school.

Assistant superintendent Fred Hill says data shows a significant number of teens or student mothers in Lee County. The district hopes to have the program in place for the next school year that begins August 4th. The plan would include high school classes and special parenting education instruction.
