DISD Charter Partnership


This Thursday February 28th at the Dallas ISD Board meeting, there will be a vote on agenda item 7.03:

CONSIDER AND TAKE POSSIBLE ACTION TO ADOPT BOARD POLICY [for] CHARTER PARTNERSHIP.

A partnership of this nature is a pass-through to private operators. This allows public dollars (taxpayer money) to be controlled by independent, non-elected governing boards. This is a total loss of elected representation for students, families and community members.

If you believe that Dallas ISD should NOT turn over funds and/or schools to private operators, please email the Dallas ISD Board of Trustees (all) and ask them to vote NO on Charter Partnership Agenda Item 7.03.

Also, consider signing up to speak Thursday evening. You must register to speak by 5 pm on Wednesday February 27th by calling Board Services at 972-925-3720. If you do not want to speak, please consider attending the meeting to support the opposition speakers.
