2018 State of the District
Dallas ISD is on the rise and wants to share the good news with partners in the community at the inaugural State of the District.
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.
The State of the District is an opportunity to share students’ accomplishments, talk about plans to continue the upward trend and recognize that it takes everyone to make this success possible.
