Every voice matters.
In Dallas ISD, we believe every voice matters. Our district is one of diverse backgrounds, ideas, and stories, and our perspectives help define us. While we cannot unwrite the wrongs of the past, there is hope. We can use our voices to ensure injustices, of any kind, no longer continue. This site is our effort to share the stories and ideas that paint our world.
Dallas ISD also wants to foster the free exchange of positive ideas and invites you to share your perspectives at Voices@dallasisd.org.

A committment to equity

“I am thankful for each and every student, staff and parent who are part of Dallas ISD,” Superintendent Michael Hinojosa said. “Our community’s rich diversity strengthens Dallas ISD schools.”
