Public School Choice in Dallas ISD
As the district seeks to ensure that all students graduate from high school ready for college and career, Public School Choice will be a mechanism for growing the range of options so that all Dallas ISD students can attend a “best-fit school.” A “best-fit school” is a school where educators can more meaningfully and more deeply engage students intellectually by tapping into their specific interests, aspirations, and preferred learning styles. Kids are unique individuals. They learn in different ways; they aspire to different careers; and they are interested in different subjects.The more "best-fit" options, the better. Choice Schools will showcase a single, school-wide "anchor model" around which all teaching and learning happens, such as a Science/Technology/Engineering/Math (STEM) model, a performing and visual arts model, or a Montessori model.The goal is clear: If all students are able to attend a high-quality, “best-fit school,” then they will realize their full academic potential.
