History



The district was created in 1961 via the consolidation of the Cactus, Johnson, and Nye school districts.

By the 2000s, United ISD had a rapidly-growing student population due to the burgeoning populations of many colonias along the Texas-Mexicomarker border. As of the 2000s, United ISD gains about 1,500 students per year.

Standardized dress

Students in pre-Kindergarten through 8th grades are required to follow standardized dress code provided by the district; the dress code began during the 2006-2007 school year [308132]. Starting the 2007-2008 school year, high school students will also be required to follow the same standardized dress code procedures as approved by the Board of Trustees [308133].

The Texas Education Agency specified that the parents and/or guardians of students zoned to a school with uniforms may apply for a waiver to opt out of the uniform policy so their children do not have to wear the uniform [308134]; parents must specify "bona fide" reasons, such as religious reasons or philosophical objections.
