The City of Pottsboro, Preston Peninsula, Locust and Mill Creek areas all form what is known as the Pottsboro Independent School District. Located entirely in Grayson County, PISD is fully accredited by the Texas Education Agency and provides full instructional programs for children in grades Pre-K-12 and Head Start, and also provides for the individual student by offering special gifted/talented programs and special education.

The Pottsboro School District received the highest rating from the Texas Education Agency (TEA) of”Met Standards”. TEA assigns each school district and each campus in Texas an annual accountability rating based on test scores, attendance rates, and drop-out rates. The district receives an annual Texas Accountability Performance Report (T APR), which reviews the district and campus progress. This report is available for your review in the Central Office of the Pottsboro ISD and at each campus principals’ office.

Besides following state curriculum, PISD competes in University Interscholastic League (UIL) competitions, with meets beginning in the 2nd grade. Students can participate in a wide variety of competitions from academic such as keyboarding or number sense to creative such as one-act play or band, to athletic, such as football, basketball or track. Pottsboro ISD is currently in District 5-3A for football and all other sports are District 10-3A. The High School has dual credit courses with Grayson County College through the Distance Leaming Lab located at the High School. Also, available are AP courses and the Texas Scholar Program.

FREE BREAKFAST PROGRAM

Mornings can be hectic. Why not slow down and let your child eat breakfast at school? Pottsboro ISD is changing the way breakfast is served.

Every student attending Pottsboro schools can eat a breakfast which meets TEA/USDA requirements free of charge. Additional food items may be purchased. The free breakfast program will provide the opportunity for more children to start the day right.

Research shows students who regularly eat a nutritious breakfast can work efficiently, concentrate on the morning’s tasks, react quickly and are less likely to experience the gnawing hunger pangs that can interfere with learning.

POLICY ONLINE

The Pottsboro ISD School board policies can be accessed on-line at www.tasb.org/policy/pol/private/091913. This website is available to review any school policies. This website contains policies governing the operation of this District.

The Policies are available because they are required by law or by the Texas Education Agency; because they are recommended by the Texas Association of School Boards as essential to effective District governance and Management; or because the Board wishes to make a statement in a particular policy area.

This website was created with the assistance of TASB Policy Services and adheres to certain structural conventions. The most visible of these conventions is the presence of separate (LEGAL) and (LOCAL) policies at many policy codes. This separation serves to help all users-whether members of the public or members of the Board-distinguish between the requirements of an extensive body of school law and the policy determinations of the local board.

FINANCIAL INTEGRITY

RATING SYSTEM OF TEXAS

The annual Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST) rated the Pottsboro Independent School District with a Superior Achievement.
