Superheroes–and a few well dressed supervillains–took over 41 Dallas ISD schools this week. But instead of a battle of good versus evil, these teachers and students are tackling something just as important: unfinished learning.
“Our students are feeling empowered with learning they might have missed during the pandemic,” Murillo said. “These intersession weeks are a way to even the playing field and get students up to speed with their peers.”
Over at Jack Lowe Sr. Elementary School, which won the National Blue Ribbon Award in 2019, Principal Sandra Barrios praised the intersession week.
“Teachers loved the schedule and the amount of time they were able to focus on kids,” Barrios said. “We’ve done fun activities and everyone is saying how peaceful and beneficial this is for teachers and students alike.”
