    Good Work All Around

    Dallas ISD is on the rise! The district continues to show strong gains in academic achievement under the Texas Education Agency’s (TEA) A to F accountability system. With a five-point gain, Dallas ISD has earned a “B” for the second year in a row, increasing from an 81 to 86. Fifty-seven percent of our schools earned an A or B in the district’s more rigorous local accountability system; 28 of which earned an A.  

    Without doubt, this growth is a result of the hard work and dedication of our students, led by district educators and administrators, with strong support from parents and partners. Our work as a community is reflected in these academic gains, and I am grateful to everyone for their commitment to our children.

    Two District 6 schools stand among the 28 Dallas ISD schools to earn an A as a state rating. Congratulations to Jimmie Tyler Brashear Elementary and Kathlyn Joy Gilliam Collegiate Academy for stellar academic performance across the board.

    I’m  also delighted to share that eight District 6 schools received a hard earned B state rating.  See those schools below:

    • A. Hulcy STEAM Middle School
    • Maria Moreno Elementary School
    • Martin Weiss Elementary School
    • Umphrey Lee Elementary School
    • Ronald E. McNair Elementary School
    • Leslie A. Stemmons Elementary School
    • Thomas L. Marsalis Elementary School
    • Thomas Tolbert Elementary School

    While celebrating our recent academic growth, we remain aware that our work is not done yet. Committed to growing student performance at every school, the district will be providing intervention plans and additional support to campuses that need an academic boost. 

    For Your Safety

    Fall ushers in the first of many sporting events for our schools and the district is committed to ensuring the safety and enjoyment of all who attend. Dallas ISD has a new clear bag guideline for fans entering any district athletic facility. Non-clear bags such as backpacks, fanny packs or purses are prohibited. Guests can bring clear tote bags, a plastic storage bag or small clutch purse. I encourage all families, friends and community members to review the guidelines before attending a game to avoid any inconveniences. Click here for more information regarding this policy.
