Save the Date: Back to School Fair--August 15, 2020

As a district of the community, it is our goal to equip our Eagles to soar for the 2020-2021 school year! 

This year, DeSoto ISD will host a virtual back to school fair with a drive-thru school supply pick-up. While maintaining social distancing, we will continue to support students to ensure that they are academically prepared.

The 2020-2021 Back to School Fair will take place from 9 am to noon, Saturday, August 15, 2020, at the DeSoto High School located at 600 Eagle Dr., DeSoto, TX 75115. 

Registration for the event will open soon for students and families. For those interested in supporting DeSoto ISD as we prepare for the upcoming school year, there are opportunities to donate materials for students and sponsorships.

DeSoto ISD 2020-2021 Staff & Parent Back to School Survey

As we prepare for the 2020-2021 school year, DeSoto ISD has organized a task force of teachers and leaders within the district to collectively review the guidelines and criteria for a safe return to schools as issued by governmental agencies such as the Dallas County Health and Human Services, the Centers for Disease Control, and the Texas Education Agency, among other entities.


While the international response to COVID-19 continues to evolve, DeSoto ISD wants to ensure that we consider the sentiments and perspectives of our families, students, and staff as we prepare to make decisions regarding how we will facilitate learning in a way that is viable, safe and best supports our families.


Please complete the survey below to help us gauge the early sentiments and perspectives related to DeSoto ISD’s return to school for the 2020-2021 school year. If you are both a parent and a staff member, please complete both surveys.
