Ensuring racial, social and educational equity for all students is critical to the district’s mission to educate all students for success. As a large urban school district with an ethnically and racially diverse staff and student enrollment, Dallas ISD is committed to equitable distribution of services and resources. Unquestionably, at times in our district’s 100-plus-year history, we have fallen short of this commitment. In those instances, some groups of students did not receive every available resource to help them succeed academically. This inequity created unfair distribution of financial, educational and material resources that has frankly limited the advancement of generations of students. As we face the future, Dallas ISD is committed to taking decisive, corrective action.
