    Off to a Great New School Year, Well Supplied 

    Welcome back to a new school year, everyone! It always warms my heart when community organizations step up to support our kids, either through their labor or material generosity. One recent example of this is the backpack and supplies giveaway at David W. Carter High School, sponsored by the Theta Mu Sigma Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma, Inc. Thank you, Sigmas and Gregory Chapman. Your support is always appreciated!

    Welcome, New Principals

    As we kick off this new school year, I’d like to recognize three new principals in District 6. They are Troy Tyson at Carter High School, Natalie Crittendon at Adele Turner Elementary School and Tiffiny Green at Mark Twain Elementary.  Welcome! I look forward to working with each of you to serve our kids.

    Safety first when it comes to COVID-19

    I was proud to vote with my fellow trustees to stand up for local control when it comes to masking. As our board president said, we’ve got to do what’s right. Superintendent Michael Hinojosa announced last month that, to protect staff and students from the spread of the highly contagious coronavirus Delta variant, Dallas ISD is temporarily requiring all staff, students and visitors to wear masks when on district property. Our children are precious and we must protect them.
