The student handbook contains information that both students and parents are likely to need during the school year. Throughout the handbook you will notice symbols that indicate whether a policy applies only to students at certain campus levels. There is a key at the bottom of each page to explain these symbols. If there is no symbol next to a statement, then it applies to ALL STUDENTS. We have attempted to make the language as straightforward as possible; however, please be aware that the term “the student’s parent” is used to refer to the parent, legal guardian, or other person who has agreed to assume a school-related responsibility for a student.

The student handbook is designed to be in harmony with Board policy and the Student Code of Conduct. Please be aware that the Handbook is updated yearly, while policy adoption and revision may occur throughout the year. Changes in policy that affect student handbook provisions will be made available to students and parents through newsletters, the MISD website ( and other communications.

In case of conflict between Board policy or the Student Code of Conduct and any provisions of student handbooks, the provisions of Board policy or the Student Code of Conduct that were most recently adopted by the Board are to be followed.

Please take the time to look over the information provided. Understanding this information will assist you in the path to success in Mesquite ISD schools.

If changes in local policy or state law become effective after the printing and adoption of these booklets, they will supersede the information currently printed in these booklets.
