AUSTIN, Texas and JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI --Pearl River County School District, which serves the rural areas of Pearl River County, Mississippi, as well as Lauderdale County School District, which serves Lauderdale County and suburban Meridian, have selected Mesa Cloud as their student progress platform.
