The Dallas Independent School District (Dallas ISD) will host a districtwide showcase of school offerings with representatives from all 228 district schools, at the Discover Dallas ISD Fair from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 3.
This first-ever event will highlight academic choices from prekindergarten, single-gender and magnet schools to collegiate academies, STEM and STEAM schools and neighborhood schools that offer students a close-knit family-like environment with rigorous academic instruction. The event will better equip parents with knowledge about the dozens of school and academic programs available in Dallas ISD.
“In north Texas, our schools offer more educational options than are available anywhere in the metroplex, and we have a track record of improving graduation rates and preparing students for college and careers,” said Stephanie Elizalde, Dallas ISD chief of School Leadership. “We want parents to see and experience what our schools are doing to put more students on a track for academic and career success.”
Elementary schools will be featured at Ellis Davis Field House, 9191 Polk St., and secondary schools will exhibit at the nearby STEAM Middle School at D.A. Hulcy, 9339 S. Polk St. To ensure adequate parking and to provide families sufficient time to visit booths and collect information, it’s suggested that families attend the fair according to the following schedule:
- 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Families with last names A-L
- 12:30 to 4 p.m. Families with last names M-Z
The fair will also feature demonstrations of career and technical and STEM programs like robotics and culinary arts as well as the district’s outstanding fine and performing arts programs.
