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.

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.
Thank you to our generous 2019 sponsors!
