Community Awareness Meeting

Posted: February 1, 2016

There will be a parent/community awareness meeting Monday, February 8, 2016 from 6:00-7:30 at the L.A. Mills Administration building. The presentation will be for adults and will be titled: "Help I have children! – Keeping Parents (or grandparents) up-to-date on Technology's influences". This presentation will help parents (and grandparents) to address technology’s lure for children and their vulnerability to exploitation through technology. Parents will understand the perfect storm their children are growing up in and how to interrupt the effects. Resources will be available for on-going conversations with your children.


Changes to Mass Notification System

Posted: January 29, 2016

Midlothian ISD uses Blackboard Connect (known as ParentLink) to communicate with parents and guardians. This mass notification system is used for emergency messages as well as general information. The database is updated daily from our student management system.

An important change was made pertaining to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). The TCPA rules now prohibit making any non-emergency calls using an automatic telephone dialing system to send pre-recorded voice or text messages via a wireless telephone number. Emergencies are defined as circumstances that will affect the health and/or safety of students.

To comply with the recent clarification, MISD will only send Blackboard Connect automated phone calls or text messages for an emergency only. The campus and district administration may continue to use the system to send attendance alerts and general messages to parent emails. It is the parents responsibility to provide their child's campus with any email address changes during the school year.

Parents who have opted in to receive phone calls or text messages via Remind 101 or other communication tools will continue to receive those messages.

If you have any questions please contact Jana Pongratz at (972) 775-8296 x1037 or email
