Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!
08/12/2016

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!  We are ready to begin a new year as we continue to move forward as a Destination District in East Texas.  Our theme in Mineola ISD this year is “Operation:  Innovation” as we seek to personalize learning for every child through innovative methods. 

Many exciting things have happened over the summer on our campuses in conjunction with the Strategic Plan adopted by the School Board in March of 2015.

POINTS OF PRIDE FROM THE STRATEGIC PLAN:

  • Hiring a music teacher to ensure that every student from K-12 has a quality Fine Arts experience in music. (Strategy #2 and #3)
  • Transitioning to the Skyward Student Information System.  Parents/Guardians are now able to complete the registration process online without filling out multiple forms for each child and have family access to their student’s progress. (Strategy #4)
  • Setting the school day to begin at 7:50 a.m. on every campus.  This will allow for us to maximize the number of minutes within each school day for instruction. (Strategy #1)
  • Implementing the Standard Response Protocol across the district for emergency management to keep our students and staff safe. (Strategy #1)
  • Creating a Middle School campus “Makerspace” area for students to design individual and group projects, learn coding and programming, and create their own products. (Strategy #2 and #5)
  • Creating a Student Center and Commons area along with collaborative spaces on our High School campus. (Strategy #2 and #5)
  • Installing a new basketball court and drinking fountain on the Elementary playground for our students thanks to the partnerships with the PTO and parents! (Strategy #5)                                                                  

Strategy 1:  We will ensure all students have a safe environment.

Strategy 2:  We will ensure a culture of innovation among staff and students.

Strategy 3:  We will ensure a supportive system that develops exceptional staff.

Strategy 4:  We will ensure open communication with the community that is timely and relevant.

Strategy 5:  We will ensure that our facilities support a learner-centered environment.

We are blessed to have a wonderful staff and a supportive community as we prepare for this year.  Our goal is to meet the unique learning needs of our students and prepare them for success in life!  Make sure you follow us on Facebook or Twitter @Mineola ISD #MISDinnovate.
