Important Message From Our Food & Nutrition Services Department

On Friday, May 12, Mesquite ISD’s Food & Nutrition Services Department was hit by the worldwide Cyber Attack. As a result, all cafeteria software was affected, causing issues with student accounts. Our Technical Services team is working tirelessly to resolve the problems, but in the meantime, we want to keep you informed on how this situation impacts students and parents. Rest assured that student information and credit card information was not compromised. But in protective measures to keep information from being compromised, the outcome resulted in limited communication between outside systems and our registers on each campus.

Student meal account balances are not available at this time.

  • The online payment system, School Café, has been turned off.
  • Parents will not see accurate information in their School Café accounts
  • Cash or check payments may still be made at the register
  • Free & reduced meal applications must be processed manually; online applications are not available at this time

Mesquite ISD will keep you informed of any updates to this situation. Our top priority is ensuring that all students continue to receive healthy meals while at school. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to resolve these issues.



Strategic Planning Process

In the fall of 2015, Mesquite ISD embarked upon a new strategic planning process to develop a 5-year plan for the district. The process includes four phases. Phase I is currently under way and near completion.  Here are the four phases and the actions involved in each phase of the process:


Phase I

  • Board establishes beliefs, vision and categorical framework.

  • Strategic Planning Team established.

  • 2-day retreat held; mission, strategic objectives, and strategies are developed. (May 19-20, 2016)

  • Progress reported to Board of Trustees (June 2016)

Phase II

  • Action Teams formed (1 team per strategy); superintendent assigns action team leaders and team members (usually 10-15 memebers)

  • Action Teams work independently for 2 to 3 months developing action plans to support the assigned strategy.

Phase III

  • Action Team Leaders present action plans to Strategic Planning Committee at a 1-day retreat.

  • Strategic Planning Committee can accept the action plans as presented or sent back to the Action Teams for more work.

  • Once all action plans are accepted, the Board of Trustees approves the Strategic Plan.

Phase IV

  • Superintendent assigns action plans to specific years to begin implementation

  • Superintendent assigns action plan ownership to specific administrators

  • Accountability system is developed.
