Socioeconomic Diversity Pilot

  • In August of 2016, Dallas ISD launched Solar Preparatory School for Girls. This school, which will grow to be a K - 8th grade campus, is designated as a Socioeconomic Diversity Pilot school, where 50% of it's students came from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, while the other 50% did not.

    In August of 2017, Dallas ISD will open its doors to the district's second Socioeconomic Diversity Pilot school. CityLab High School will open in downtown Dallas with 100 incoming 9th graders and will grow to be a full 9th - 12th grade school.
