The health and safety of students is our top priority. Out of an abundance of caution, Dallas ISD took a proactive stance to review environmental concerns following national discussion of lead and other chemicals in water. In October 2016, a districtwide water sampling effort began of each campus.
Collection and analysis of the testing was performed by a third-party. We have learned from the results that several campuses had elevated levels of either, lead or copper.
In every instance, action has been taken to replace filters, retrofit units with filters, or the units have been replaced altogether.
We will continue to monitor the sampling efforts. For updates please feel free to review the webpage where you can access campus reports as they become available at www.dallasisd.org/watertesting.
