Our district has a very bright future and our students will absolutely benefit from the continued progress in DCR1.
The progress that has occurred over the last few years can now continue and we will be able to address our facility needs to give our students the best possible start on their futures. Many of the decisions for next budget year have yet to be made, but I am optimist about us continuing to improve our student achievement, our continued improvements in staff pay, and our continued facility improvement. Thank you voters of the Dallas County R-I School District.
