Dallas ISD Fights Fentanyl
Fentanyl is involved in more deaths of Americans under 50 than any cause of death, including heart disease, cancer, homicide, suicide and other accidents.
Dallas ISD has served on the city of Dallas Fentanyl Strike Task Force since November 2022 in a citywide effort to combat the increase in opioid-related deaths and overdoses affecting our state and nation. District leaders have committed to hosting a series of parent-focused forums throughout each region to raise awareness of the dangers of opioids, focusing specifically on fentanyl.
