MFISD Encourages Partners in Education
There are a significant number of ways that parents, community members and businesses can also be involved in the education process. The District Educational Improvement Committee (DEIC) is a site-based committee composed of teachers, administrators, parents, community and business members. This committee helps plan the District calendar, staff development, and creates the District Improvement Plan, which guides the district in achieving the goals set by the Board of Trustees. At each campus there is a Campus Education Improvement Committee (CEIC) that meets monthly to assist the principal and staff in budget, staff development and procedural issues. To learn more about potential membership in the DEIC or to just receive more information, please contact the Assistant Superintendent for Academics at (830) 693-4357. To become involved in the campus level committees (CEIC), please contact the Principal of the particular campus in which you are interested.
