Dallas ISD ACE Expansion

Dear ACE Family and Friends,

What an exciting time in Dallas ISD! Within a few short years, our district improved from 43 "improvement required" schools to only 13. No doubt, your efforts have made a difference for students, but our work must continue. Superintendent Dr. Hinojosa set the vision for our district not to settle for "pockets of excellence" across the city, but rather create "systems of excellence for all students". Our work through ACE is critical to realizing that vision.


Our mission to "accelerate the transformation of struggling schools so that each student may become college ready" is valuable and still necessary. To maximize success and sustainability, we revised the ACE program to include a greater focus on teacher leadership development. Please review the notes below to learn about next steps for our current programs and new programs.


The magic of ACE is you! Getting the right people through strategic staffing makes all the difference. As Jim Collins says in his bestselling book Good to Great: Once you get the right people on the bus, you can go anywhere! Thank you for joining the ACE team to accelerate learning for students.


Best wishes for a wonderful last six weeks!

Jolee Healey
