The Dallas ISD Office of Racial Equity has been established to eliminate inequitable practices that inherently negatively impact student achievement. The goal of this office is the management, execution and facilitation of the programmatic ideology expressed in the Board of Trustees approved Racial, Socio-Economic and Educational Equity Resolution.

The goal of the meeting included the following:
- Provide opportunities for school leaders to offer input regarding goals of the Office of Racial Equity
- Begin the collaborative process of establishing alliances with campus leaders
- Prepare for the 2018-2019 school year with respect to gaining input regarding programs and understanding resource allocation
- Establish an ongoing workshop for input from campus leaders
A number of school leadership executives also attended the meeting including Deputy Chief Brian Lusk , Executive Directors Earl Jones, Elena Hill, Stanley Munro and Joanne Frantzen.
The Office of Racial Equity is excited to begin this extremely important work.
