A special reception at City Hall honored the teachers and leaders at Dallas ISD ACE campuses who have dramatically improved student learning over the past three years.
The ACE program, which stands for Accelerating Campus Excellence, boosts student achievement by staffing struggling schools with strong leaders and high-performing teachers. The reception held March 27 showed appreciation to these teachers and campus leaders.
“We are celebrating how we are closing the achievement gap and ensuring all students have excellent schools in Dallas ISD,” said Jolee Healey, the Dallas ISD assistant superintendent overseeing the ACE program.
Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings thanked the teachers and staff at the reception for volunteering to step up and help transform the district’s most struggling schools.
“The life-changing impact you are making in schools and with students every day is amazing,” Rawlings said.
