Dallas ISD State of the District
  • Thank you to all who were part of the inaugural Dallas ISD State of the District. We appreciate you taking an interest in the work we are doing and celebrating with us the accomplishments of our students and schools. With the help of your generous support, Dallas ISD is on the rise! That’s good news for our students, parents, educators, partners and the entire city.

    For those who attended the event, we hope you enjoyed meeting our amazing students and seeing them in action, as well as hearing more about the exciting plans on the horizon for Dallas ISD. We are eager to share more good news and accomplishments with you at the next Dallas ISD State of the District, which will take place at 11:30 a.m. on Feb. 21, 2020, at the Omni Dallas Hotel, 555 S. Lamar St. Interested in being a sponsors for next year's State of the District? Click here to let us know.  

    Recent data proves that Dallas ISD schools are trending upward in academic achievement across multiple measures. Students continue to improve as they reach higher achievement standards and narrow the gap between the district and the state. Thanks to successful initiatives designed to support students and schools, Dallas ISD has been able to reach these milestones. But the results are not the work of the district alone. Parents, volunteers, community organizations and business partners have provided invaluable support on the way to greater achievements.  

    We have a video of the 2019 State of the District so you can see our student performances and Superintendent Michael Hinojosa's presentation. We have also put together a photo gallery of the event.
