DeSoto ISD to Require Clear Backpacks for 18-19

The DeSoto Independent School District Board of Trustees approved an update to the student code of conduct which will require district students to use clear backpacks when schools reconvene next fall.

The clear bag requirement is just one of a number of safety initiatives the district will implement for the upcoming school year.

Clear backpacks will be required for students in grades pre-K to 12.  Students would still be able to use band and athletic bags, purses and lunch bags which are subject to search and wanding.

Clear bags will be made available to students who pre-register for the district’s August 4 Back-to-School Fair.

Those interested, can also purchase clear backpacks at Wal-Mart and Target among other retailers.

Other new safety measures include increased monitoring of all exterior doors and entrance intercom systems. The district will also implement random searches and provide emergency situation training for teachers and administrators. The district also plans to hire additional police officers.

Given recent unfortunate incidents that have taken place across the country, DeSoto ISD has chosen to take action and make difficult decisions that are for the better good of the DeSoto and Glenn Heights community.

DeSoto ISD is committed to the safety of our students, staff and volunteers. We will do whatever is in our power to secure our campuses so that you don’t have to worry about your children when they are in school. We hope we can count on your support in these endeavors.
