Bryan Adams Feeder Pattern Updates

Conversation with the Superintendent
Dr. Hinojosa spent a great amount of time talking about Dallas ISD’s market share. Ten years ago 2,000 students who lived in Dallas did not attend Dallas ISD. Today 27,000 students do not attend DISD schools; instead, they go to charter schools, which are free open-enrollment schoolswith less oversight. Enrollment in Dallas ISD has been flat for several years and this year the district lost 2,000 students to charter schools. This is a new situation where currently 66% of the market share of students in Dallas not attending Dallas ISD.
As one principal told her staff ... Dr. Hinojosa has talked about this at each of the principals’ meetings throughout the year. In the Bryan Adams Feeder Pattern, we have chosen to increase our social media presence. We need to do everything we can to market all of the amazing things that happen within our schools so we remain an attractive option for our neighborhood families.
Seeing is believing, so throw open the doors and invite the community in!

Buddy Reading at Reinhardt
Tiffiny Green’s Little League of Ram Readers: It is a reading program designed to promote literacy at Reinhardt. Students work in pairs (3rd and Kindergarten) for one-on-one reading time. Third grade students create and lead guided reading lessons with their reading buddies. Students are able to gain self-confidence, reading skills, academic growth and a new desire to read. Why? Because they thrive on having someone look up to them, and they’re able to read easy books that boost their own confidence; sometimes backing up to an easy book is just what a struggling reader needs, but won’t do on their own.
