DISD Wants Your Thoughts on Trustee Districts

Most of Preston Hollow People’s readership lives in DISD’s District 2, which completely surrounds the Highland Park school district and stretches as far east as White Rock Lake. The rest of you live in District 1, which sprawls as far north as the corner of Trinity Mills Road and Marsh Lane.

If you think these maps need to be redrawn, you’re in luck. DISD’s Board of Trustees wants to hear from you. Between tonight and Aug. 4, the board is hosting a series of public hearings. Jump for the details.

DALLAS – The Dallas Independent School District Board of Trustees is considering new boundaries for its trustee districts and is seeking the community’s input during public hearings scheduled throughout the city.

According to the 2010 Census data, Dallas ISD’s trustee districts are out of balance and must be redrawn in order to comply with the “one-person, one vote” requirement of the U. S. Constitution.
