Dean of Students







Melinda Briggs
IMS Dean of Students/Campus Testing & ESL Coordinator


As the new Dean of Students for the IMS, I welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year.  We, at Bulldog Nation, are having a GAME CHANGING year! I am excited for the opportunity to work with all of our students and teachers at the IMS.


I will also be serving as Campus Testing Coordinator and ESL Campus Coordinator.  This is my 12th year with Rice ISD. I have taught first, third, fifth, seventh and eighth grades.  Although I grew up and graduated high school in Dallas, my family and I have been residents of Rice for 23 years.  I am a graduate of Texas A&M University, College Station. WHOOP!!


I already know a number of our students, but I look forward to knowing all of you and your families.  I know we will have a great year and accomplish many things. We have awesome kids in Rice ISD and I look forward to building relationships with them all.  


I have included a link below for STAAR testing information.  Should you have any questions regarding STAAR, please feel free to contact me.


Go Bulldogs!
