McKinney, Texas – McKinney ISD has been named a 2016 “Best Place to Work” by the Dallas Business Journal and is the only school district to make the list this year.

“What makes this award so special is that it is based on feedback from our employees,” said MISD Assistant Superintendent and Chief Human Resources Officer Tamira Griffin. “It’s the people of MISD that truly make it one of the best, if not the best, places to work in the metroplex and beyond.”
