MISD Senior Snapshot - Complete it Now
It's time for MISD Senior Snapshot. COMPLETE NOW!
As graduation draws near, counselors prepare for the occasion by gathering information from each senior about their college, career, or military plans after high school.
Administrators use this information to share our graduates' accomplishments during the graduation ceremony, including total scholarships, military enlistments, and career certifications.
Also, we ask that students provide contact information to reach you with any questions and mail your final transcripts after you graduate.
It is very straightforward. Last year we had over an 80% completion rate!
Parents/Guardians/Grandparents – you may submit the form on behalf of your student.
