What is a Candidate Scorecard? DKF has given each candidate a score from “A” (very strong) to “F” (very weak) based on: (i) school board voting history, if available; (ii) written responses to DKF’s Candidate Survey; (iii) in-person interviews with DKF’s interview committee; and (iv) demonstrated problem solving success in governance. DKF scores were designed to give voters a recognizable candidate benchmark.
What do DKF's candidate scores mean? DKF candidate scores are designed to give voters a well-rounded assessment of each candidate’s ability to positively affect the Dallas ISD Board of Trustees by advocating for and implementing policies that will lead to tangible district-wide improvements in student achievement.
Are DKF scores transparent? Hundreds of hours of research and documentation have gone into DKF’s scores, and voters can easily understand scores by reviewing the candidate rubric, each candidate’s positions, and [for incumbents] self-contained voting history source documents for each respective District.
