DeSoto ISD Essential Item(s) Request & Additional Needs Notification Form
Due to our extended closure, we understand that there may be essential items that students may need to retrieve from campuses. Therefore, we have created a form for parents/students to submit a request to retrieve such items. In addition, we understand that some families may experience a need due to the extended closure of not only schools, but other resources. We will utilize this same form to collect information so that we may try to connect families to an outreach service.

  • The Student Support Services Division and counseling teams held various calls to break out into sub-committees to begin to identify cohorts of students who staff members will reach out to.
  • Special Education is working on communication updates for principals and teachers that will outline how FAPE will be provided for students. A system was created in order for virtual ARDs to take place. Currently developing a plan to address the continuation of district testing for services.
  • High school counselors and members of SSS came together to outline the most critical topics to cover with our senior students
Because of the large volume of requests we have received for at-home devices, the DeSoto ISD Technology Department will be unable to begin distribution of devices this week. Technology is diligently working to ensure that we have devices for all students who need them. The department is currently preparing and disinfecting those devices. Device distribution to DeSoto ISD families will begin once this process has been completed.
Families who have requested at-home tech will receive an email next week with details about when and where you will be able to pick up a device district students. Until then, please continue referring to the DeSoto ISD Student Learning Plan which includes student educational activities that do not require use of a device to complete.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding during this process. 
If you are having difficulty with accessing the necessary technology, DeSoto ISD will have tech support available during regular business hours (8am - 5pm). Please email (1) a brief description of the issue and (2) your name and phone number to  and we will try to help you rectify your issue quickly.
