Hi DeSoto ISD Eagles!

You’ve been patiently awaiting news about the long-term plan for distance learning for this semester while you have worked HARD on your week 1 and week 2 distance learning assignments! We’ve got a stellar plan to meet the needs of our kids with tech and tech-free assignments, flexible instructional methods to allow kids, families, and district employees the flexibility to adjust to life in response to a global pandemic, and a plan that ensures access to high-quality learning for kids!

To be sure we pull it off with the highest quality, and that we solve for the many challenges facing us all as we shelter in place, the week of March 30, 2020, will be an intensive professional learning and planning week for our grown-up DeSoto Eagles. For students, we have posted learning plans for the week of March 30, 2020. Find the plans at our DeSoto ISD Distance Learning website. Students and families with questions should contact their child’s teachers directly.
