Palestine ISD Superintendent Jason Marshall


Congratulations to the Senior Class of 2020 for graduating from Palestine High School.  We thank you for the time you spent with us and hope you will stay in touch with all of us in the district.  We also send Best Wishes to you on your future endeavors.  Again, congratulations to you – Wildcats Forever!


In summer news, we started summer school (TACE) on Tuesday, May 26th, and we will conclude on Thursday, July 2nd.  Summer school will be virtual/online this summer, and students will work one on one with their assigned teacher(s) on a digital curriculum program.  Please contact your campus if you have any summer school related questions including how to take advantage of summer meals.


Palestine ISD is working daily on the school calendar for 2020-21.  We had previously adopted a calendar in February (posted on our web page), but due to the Covid-19 situation we are reviewing our adopted calendar to see what adjustments we might need to make.  We are meeting with other county school districts, our district staff, community leaders, and adhering to TEA guidelines as we consider possible calendar changes for 2020-21. We also plan to send parents a survey in early June in order to get input from parents.  Once we make a final decision, we will inform our PISD community.


While the summer of 2020 may not feel like a “traditional summer” since we have already been at home so long, I do hope you can enjoy the time with your family.  Maybe as the sun continues to shine and we feel its heat, we will be reminded that spring is behind us and that summer is actually here.  Have a good time this summer, be safe, and we look forward to seeing you in the fall (whatever the fall may bring us).
