    About Partnership Schools:

    Dallas ISD is committed to deepening and expanding innovation throughout the District. In 2017, the Texas Legislature passed Senate Bill 1882 encouraging Districts to leverage Partnerships to grow innovative practices and improve student outcomes. The District launched a Call for Proposals (CFP) for Partnership School applications December 2018. Proposed Partnerships that are approved by the Board will govern and operate an identified District school. Specific responsibilities, authorities, and autonomies will be determined by a partnership management agreement and performance contract.
