Mesquite ISD will offer a temporary virtual option (TVO) to students enrolled in kindergarten through 6th grade, ages 5 to 11, as of Aug. 30, 2021.

Due to staffing limitations, this option will be parent led; students will not have a teacher assigned to them. Students must have an adult at home who will serve as a home learning coach.

The district chose to make this option available due to overwhelming requests from our families; however, parents should give careful consideration to their child’s educational needs.

For most students, this option is not recommended.
