More than 2,300 students and their parents attended the 2018 Dallas ISD Districtwide College Fair on Sept. 19 to learn about opportunities available after high school graduation.
That attendance figure represents more than 1,800 Dallas ISD students, nearly 50 more who attend schools outside of Dallas ISD and the about 400 parents/guardians who also visited the fair.
When they arrived, they were greeted by dozens of representatives from colleges, universities, trade schools and the military who were eager to share information about their institutions.
Transportation was once again available to the fair from Dallas ISD schools. There were 830 students who rode 27 buses to the fair, with 123 bus chaperones riding along.
There were 45 high school counselors serving as volunteers and representatives from supporting district departments, including Student Engagement and Counseling Services, Custodial Services, Graphics, Communications Services, Health Services, Dallas ISD Police, Strategic Initiatives and External Relations and Transportation Services, that supported the event. Some departments weren’t present at the event, but they all supported the College Fair in some way.
