Bringing to life the mission of Dallas ISD of educating all students for success, is a community effort. 

Dallas ISD is grateful for the support of parents and community members who said “Yes” to our recent 13-cent Tax Ratification Election (TRE). Your vote will provide $126 million in annual funding to help us support initiatives proven to boost student achievement and to improve services to Dallas ISD students in multiple ways:

  • Increases in kindergarten readiness, including more classes and facilities, better quality programs and more effective teachers.
  • Investment in racial equity that will expand the cultural competence of our staff, grow student and staff leadership opportunities and improve equity in facility improvements and operations.
  • Provide more students a best-fit school by launching more choice schools and expanding academic options.
  • Provide compensation for teachers and staff that supports and rewards excellence.

The TRE will bring the tax rate to $1.17 per $100 of property value. This, for example, will translate to about a $20 monthly increase for the owner of a home valued at $184,574.

Meanwhile, Dallas voters also approved Dallas ISD propositions to support a $75 million bond for new buses and a bus barn, a $75 million bond to refund outstanding maintenance tax notes, and the purchase of attendance credits.

Thank you for your support! We remain strongly committed to providing all Dallas ISD students a quality education and to supporting our educators so Dallas ISD becomes the best urban district in the country.
