Our Dallas schools and their successes should be just as BIG.
There are many positive stories today in DISD, but much remains to be done.
DallasKidsFirst is about putting Dallas kids first in education.
WHO is DallasKidsFirst?
DallasKidsFirst is the teacher that buys supplies from her own pocket because her students need them to succeed.
DallasKidsFirst is the group of parents that meets for coffee every Saturday morning to discuss how to improve their school.
DallasKidsFirst is the young professional who does not have children but cares about what happens to the schools in his neighborhood.
DallasKidsFirst is YOU.
DallasKidsFirst is all of us who care about the education our kids receive.
We are concerned citizens and parents who believe that every kid in Dallas deserves access to high quality public schools. We believe that all students deserve outstanding teachers, and these teachers should be supported and trained. We believe that by finding and supporting high quality leaders at all levels, we can make a difference.
Change starts at the top, and we believe by providing support, transparency and community involvement in the election process, great leaders can and will be elected.
DallasKidsFirst represents accountability. We need to have high expectations for everyone involved in education from students, to teachers, to the administration, to the community. And DallasKidsFirst provides a voice for communities that insist on "kids first" decisions.
Mark your calendar.
DISD School Board Trustee elections take place on May 12. (are you registered to vote?).
By working together, we can make the election process easier to understand and can share actionable tools you'll need to make an informed decision.
DallasKidsFirst is social. We want to hear what you think and engage with you on this important topic.
Join us as we put OUR kids first.
