FAQs

Do you have a question for us? Submit your questions via e-mail to info@misdmail.org. Below are some of our most frequently asked questions.

How is the school calendar created? Are parents involved?

Calendar options are developed with coordination between the MISD Administration and the District Educational Improvement Committee (DEIC) made up of staff and parents. Options are then put out in a public survey on the district website.

Based on survey results, the DEIC presents a final calendar option to the school board. The school board approves the recommendation, makes an alteration or sends the committee back for further review. The public is involved through the survey and is always welcome to provide feedback and suggestions on the calendar.

If I live in Mansfield, can my child attend any school?

Mansfield ISD does not currently offer traditional open enrollment. Your child's school is determined by the attendance zone for your home. However, the district does offer The Power of Choice which allows students of all ages to take advantage of specific programs that are tailored to their needs—even if it is located outside of their designated attendance zone.
