Welcome to Week 8

Dallas ISD Core Beliefs

Our main purpose is to improve student academic achievement.


Effective instruction makes the most difference in student academic performance.


There is no excuse for poor quality instruction.


With our help, at risk students will achieve at the same rate as non-at risk students.


Staff members must have a commitment to children and a commitment to the pursuit of excellence
