Mesquite ISD’s Active Leaders Inspired by a Vision of Excellence (A.L.I.V.E.) program has schooled dozens of parents and community members in the workings of their local school district. The opportunity is available each fall.

Mesquite ISD is fundamental part of the community and directly affects you and your tax dollars, regardless of whether you have children in the school system. As an involved parent or community member, you may have taken the time to get to know the teachers and principal at your neighborhood school and followed the district’s successes in the news; however, you may not realize that Mesquite ISD is a vast business operation employing nearly 5,000 people – of which only about half are teachers – and chances are you still have many questions.

A.L.I.V.E. gives you an opportunity to study the internal operations of MISD up close and behind the scenes. Over the course of a school year, you and your classmates will meet with administrators and school board members, covering a variety of topics from curriculum and testing to tax rates and school safety. Most importantly, you will have the opportunity to pose questions to the decision-makers of Mesquite ISD.

First Meeting Jan. 10, 8:30 -10:30 a.m.

(all meetings are 8:30 - 10:30 a.m. on Wednesdays)
