DeSoto ISD Closed Indefinitely
Per the  executive order issued by Governor Greg Abbott,   DeSoto ISD buildings, campuses and facilities will remain closed indefinitely. The district will continue to provide instruction through the  Anytime, Anywhere Learning Plan  and operate remotely during this time. All students and staff are expected to continue their respective work during this time and through the end of the school year unless otherwise notified by district leadership.

Anytime, Anywhere Learning
DeSoto ISD will continue to provide virtual educational experiences and resources through the Anytime, Anywhere Learning Plan. While early phases of the district’s learning plan were centralized, the Anytime, Anywhere Learning Plan provides a district-guided framework for flexible, consistent and continual high-quality, localized instruction facilitated by your child’s teacher in the digital space.
