October is Learning Disabilities Month

Learning Disabilities Association of America (LDA) is working hard this month to shine the spotlight on learning disabilities. It is important during Learning Disabilities (LD) Month to focus less on the disabilities aspect and focus more on the incredible abilities so many of these individuals possess as well as emphasize the phenomenal achievements and important strides so many of these individuals have made. Visit the LDA website for more information, or visit the MISD Special Education webpage.



In light of recent health concerns, the Midlothian ISD administrative team and department leaders met October 20th and discussed proactive measures to ensure the safety of our students and staff. More
