Mansfield Independent School District is a school district headquartered in Mansfield, Texas, United States.

MISD serves Mansfield and portions of the cities of Grand Prairie, Arlington, and Burleson. A small portion of Cedar Hill, Fort Worth, Kennedale, and Rendon also lies within the district (only in nearby areas). A few Fort Worth and Kennedale residents are zoned mainly to go to Tarver-Rendon Elementary School, and a few Cedar Hill residents are zoned to go to Danny Jones Middle School and Mary Lillard Intermediate School. The district also extends into northeastern Johnson County.

MISD has over 30 schools and District facilities. Among the facilities are six high schools, the Ben Barber Career Tech Academy, a competition-level stadium, a natatorium complex, and a center for the performing arts.

In 2011, the school district was rated "Academically Acceptable" by the Texas Education Agency.[1]

The district integrated in 1965, and it was the last public school system to integrate in the United States of America.[citation needed]

  • ✪ FreshGrade: Mansfield ISD's Story


Creating and making our farms. We are going to upload it into FreshGrade. A few years ago, I started using digital portfolios when I got rid of worksheets in the classroom. I started using them to show parents exactly what's going on in the classroom. So, this year when Miss Boiles came to me and said, "Miss Gonzalez, we're going to pilot FreshGrade. It's a digital portfolio that you can connect the parents to the learning." I was very excited. So, we started using it in the classroom. Before we found FreshGrade, we were using just various platforms for communicating with parents. Some teachers were using apps on the phone. Some teachers were using simple email. Others were just using good old paper that they were sending home. But it really did not have the effective immediacy of FreshGrade. Our district's approach to assessment is pretty formal. We're looking to go to a place that's more organic, not quite so formal, to where it is pure formative assessment. Not waiting for a time or event, but that a student can show mastery of whatever skills they're learning at any time. I started just recording the kids at first. We'd do collaborative projects, they'd present, and I'd record their presentations. Once the presentation was uploaded, I showed them a little bit more about how they can choose work. Then, they started choosing what they load. Maybe they did an awesome job on a writing one day. So, they wanted to upload it into FreshGrade. We put it on FreshGrade. The parents saw it. As parents saw more items, the kids wanted to upload more. We have a strategic plan that's called Vision 2025, and in that, we're looking at college-ready, career-ready, and life-ready students. One of the things that we know that we need for that is real-time data, real-time current data. The first time that I saw FreshGrade, I felt like it was the perfect platform. We are piloting FreshGrade this school year on this campus with 11 teachers, who are working on a particular goal that our campus has for incorporating the four C's into teaching and learning. The four C's are communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity. We decided to use those 11 classrooms because FreshGrade brings a platform for that collaboration, communication piece that opens up the classroom to families and to outside of the general classroom. The thing that has changed the most is that I'm able to send actual pictures of the students' learning and showcase their improvements. The students are actually getting to showcase their work and their activities, Also, the parents are able to comment in real time. I had one student across the room said it out loud, "Hey, your mom commented just now!" So, the kids are really enjoying it as well. I like FreshGrade because my Dad is in another State, and it gives him a chance to see my work without me having to show it on the phone or when he gets back. So, you can just put it on FreshGrade and parents can see it whenever. It makes it really easy for them to see my work. If you're on the journey of continuous improvement and you want students to own their learning, you want them to be able to come and tell you how they're doing, not just "I'm making an 80" but "I've mastered these learning objectives. I'm where I need to be or higher than I need to be." This is the first step for someone to find an electronic resource that's not based upon pencil and paper. It's pretty exciting for our district as I'm sure it would be for others. Parent engagement is a vital piece of holistic learning. Students do not learn in isolation, the classroom in the school building is not the only place where students learn. Students learn everywhere they go, from the moment they're born really, students are learning and growing. The opportunities that parents have to help support the learning and the focus of the goals that we have here at school, really help support the goals and the mastery of the curriculum that we have here on the campus. My name is Jim Vaszauskas. I'm the Superintendent of schools for the wonderful Mansfield ISD and we use FreshGrade.
