District Accolades -- 11/16/2017

November 16, 2017 Board Meeting

Through a partnership with the Boy Scouts of America, all students at the Young Men’s Leadership Academy at Fred Florence Middle School have an opportunity to participate in the program as part of the organization’s Urban Scouting Initiative. The program makes it possible for students to participate in all aspects of Boy Scouts of America, at no cost. The goal is for students to earn merit badges in the classroom and ultimately make the Young Men’s Leadership Academy an Eagle Scout factory. 

The Greater East Dallas Chamber of Commerce recently honored its Teachers of the Year, including two from Dallas ISD: Loretta Smith from W.H. Gaston Middle School and Chris Evetts from Woodrow Wilson High School.
