Welcome Parents

Our McAllen ISD family welcomes parental and community engagement to enhance student and classroom experiences and to pro-actively identify challenges or opportunities for each individual student.

McAllen ISD nurtures every child, riveted upon an all-encompassing mission to develop them to be college and career ready upon graduation. The child’s well-being is centered inside a mutually-respectful, intertwined relationship between the parents, the teachers and the school administration. Each plays a critical part in your child’s development.

MISD is so adamant about forging these kinds of partnerships that it reaches out in many different ways.  We invite you to be involved in your child’s schooling.

Our students thrive on it.

The McAllen Independent School District is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate against any applicant on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age or disability.

McAllen ISD adopted a Maintenance and Operations tax rate that will raise more taxes for Maintenance and Operations than last year's tax rate.
The Maintenance and Operations tax rate will effectively be raised by 11.67 percent and will raise taxes for Maintenance and Operations on a $100,000 home by approximately $115.00.
While raising the Maintenance and Operations tax rate, the Board of Trustees simultaneously lowered the District’s Debt Service tax rate in an amount equal to the increase on the Maintenance and Operations tax rate.
As a result of the Board’s combined actions, there will be no increase in the District’s overall tax rate for the 2016-17 fiscal year.
