TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - A former Tupelo school building will receive a new roof.

On Friday, the Tupelo Public School District announced the Church Street location will benefit from the recent State BP Settlement Fund.

The school district will receive $400,000 to go toward the new roof.

As soon as funds are transferred, and the board approves the designs, the bidding process will begin.

“Once construction starts, it will take 60-90 days to complete,” said TPSD Operations Director Charles Laney.
