Assistant Principal Candidate Pool Coming In May
Midlothian ISD uses an Assistant Principal Candidate Pool as a part of its selection process for assistant principals. "The Pool" is populated with people interested in becoming assistant principals. Inclusion in The Pool requires approval by an interview committee. Membership in The Pool is limited to 12 calendar months. When the 12-month period is over, a candidate who desires to be in The Pool must re-apply.
There will be assistant principal positions available for the 2013-14 school year. Interviews for the Pool will be conducted in May.
An applicant will only need to apply for an assistant principal position to be considered for the Pool.

MISD Paraprofessional Scholarships!

Please note the new hours of operation at the Panther Clawset teacher resource room located at the Administration Building.
Open Tuesdays: 8am-4:30pm
All MISD teachers/staff have a monetary account through their campus budget to use for supplies such as various letter dies, laminating machines, poster maker, butcher paper, binding machine, button maker, cardstock and much more. All fees will be assessed. The Clawset is restricted to MISD employees only. This decision is due to limited supplies, budget constraints, and safety liabilities of the equipment.
MISD conveniently has a print shop with one duplicator and three copiers designed to produce large amounts of print jobs. The print shop stores different colors of paper: light blue, light pink, yellow, light green, and goldenrod. All other color of paper, transparencies and card stock must be provided by the sender. We have two different sizes of white paper: 8½X11 and 8½X14. The district encourages teachers and staff to submit print jobs that exceed 15 or pages per master to the print shop.
