Lyman Elementary School is a Title I School-wide School, which means that we receive federal funds to assist us in meeting our student's educational needs. One percent of those funds are designated for parental involvement which is how we purchase the student planners that are sent home daily and used as a communicative tool between home and school. 

Vision Statement:
All students at Lyman Elementary will achieve proficiency at each grade level according to the Mississippi College and Career Readiness Standards.

Mission Statement:  Lyman Elementary School is a dedicated learning community that cultivates academic success for all students.  Our research-based curriculum is designed to foster love for reading, critical thinking, problem solving, communicating, social-skills, and a lifelong ambition to learn through encouraging a sense of dreaming and achieving.





The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act is the primary piece of federal legislation dealing with the education of children and youth in homeless situations. In compliance with federal and state regulations, the district and Lyman Elementary strive to meet the educational needs of homeless students. Through the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, the district and Lyman Elementary are able to provide homeless students access to school and appropriate services while reducing school transfers and enhancing educational stability and continuity. Some of the services offered to qualifying students include: IN-SCHOOL TUTORING, ASSISTANCE OBTAINING VITAL RECORDS/DOCUMENTS, SCHOOL SUPPLIES, AND MEDICAL RESOURCES OR REFERRALS (WHEN APPLICABLE)

It is also our goal to strengthen parental involvement and to ensure the educational rights of unaccompanied youth. If you should have questions about the services and resources available, please contact Lyman Elementary School @ 228-832-2257.
