2023-2024 Parent Needs Assessment
The DISD Counseling Department is looking forward to supporting your scholar's social-emotional, academic, and career development growth this year.
Please complete this brief survey to help plan and develop quality programs that best meet the needs of your scholar and family. Your input is valuable, and your responses are anonymous.
Have you ever wondered if you actually signed up to be a PTA member this year and don't know how to check?
Send an email to Amy DiCarlo (firstname.lastname@example.org) and she can confirm whether or not you've renewed your membership this year. Remember....just because you have a Membership Toolkit account doesn't mean that you're an official member of our PTA.
Scoliosis screenings for 7th grade girls will take place on October 24th & 25th.
Seventh grade girls received info sheets on September 29th and will need to wear the appropriate undergarments on the days of screenings.
8th GRADE NEWS
Sudie Lions take D.C.!
Over 4 action-packed days, 79 of our 8th graders, along with 19-parent and 10-teacher chaperones traveled all over our nation's capital.
Highlights of the trip included Arlington National Cemetery, The National Archives, Mount Vernon, Ford's Theatre, The National Museum of African American History and Culture, lunch on the National Mall, a ghost tour through downtown Alexandria and Sheer Madness at The Kennedy Center.
Our amazing scholars also visited D.C.'s many memorials, monuments and museums they studied in American History and advisory this year. It was an epic experience and countless memories were made!

PREVIOUSLY SHARED INFORMATION
A message from DISD Superintendent Stephanie Elizalde below.Note: This is copy-pasted from a district-wide email that was sent October 10th.
The Texas legislature has begun a special session to once again try to divert public school funds to pay for private school subsidies. The Governor has also instructed the legislature to take up a list of political hot-button issues, including border security, public safety, and even COVID-19 vaccine restrictions.
The one thing the Governor isn’t allowing the legislature to consider is the one thing we need: a funding increase for public schools. State funding for public schools hasn’t increased since 2019. Since then, inflation has gone up 19%, which has forced Dallas ISD and all other DFW-area school districts to dip into savings to pass deficit budgets. Without help from our state legislature, Texas public schools are not fiscally sustainable.
The Governor and state leaders are counting on political pressure to pass private school vouchers. What they’re not counting on is you. They’ve scheduled this special session during the school year in hopes that we’ll be too busy teaching children to speak up for them. That’s why I’m emailing you – I need you to email them.
Click here to send state lawmakers the message that they need to support public schools, not subsidize private schools.https://p2a.co/XYRBXzGI hate asking you to do one more thing in a busy workweek, but I would never forgive myself if I didn’t ask. And I know we’d all regret it if we didn’t speak up for our kids. After all, our students can’t vote, and many of our legislators aren’t listening to our kids. That’s why I need you to be their voice!
Stephanie S. Elizalde, Ed.D. Superintendent Dallas ISD
