January is School Board Recognition Month and Dallas ISD is celebrating its trustees for their dedication and commitment to the district and its students.
The theme of this year’s School Board Recognition Month is “Forward, Together,” which highlights the collaboration among school leadership, teachers and parents on behalf of students.
In 2022 under the board members’ leadership, Dallas ISD was given a B rating by the Texas Education Agency and won the 2022 District of Distinction Award from The Texas Art Education Association (TAEA) for the second year in a row. Two district schools earned National Blue Ribbon School awards while two other campuses were selected by the Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA) and Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) as projects for the 2022-23 Exhibit of School Architecture.
