A Message From the Superintendent

My name is Don Layton, and I’m thrilled to be starting my fifth year as Superintendent of Malakoff ISD! The Tiger community had an excellent 2022-2023 school year. Our students and staff succeeded in academics, athletics, fine arts, and all extracurricular activities. I am amazed each year by the successes of our students and staff, and they continue to excel every day. I want to encourage everyone to come out and support our Tigers this coming school year in their many activities and contests. I know they will make all of us proud.

MISD is also very excited to have the construction of a new High School underway as well as renovations on several campuses. We look forward to opening our new facility. The road to success is always under construction! 

We at Malakoff ISD look forward to the start of the 2023-2024 school year. As we welcome students back, please know that Malakoff ISD will always take the safety of students and staff very seriously.

I look forward to seeing all of our new and returning students, staff, parents, and community members this school year. If I can help you in any way, don’t hesitate to contact me. It is always a great day to be a Tiger!
