DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – DISD has selected the teachers who will serve on the 15 person Home-Rule Charter Commission.  Home Rule is a 20-year-old state law that allows school districts to bypass some state laws and create a new power structure within a district.

According to a statement released by the district, the 75 teachers who applied to be a part of the commission were narrowed to 14 finalists.  From that group, four teachers and two alternates were chosen.

The selected teachers are:

  • Isaac Freeman, Thomas C. Marsh Middle School
  • Ron Oliver, James Bowie Elementary School
  • Bonita Reece, Birdie Alexander Elementary School
  • Julie Sandel, Hillcrest High School

The following two alternates have also been selected:

  • Mark Harrington, Seagoville High School
  • Candace McAfee, Skyline High School

The Dallas ISD Board of Trustees will select the remaining eleven members of the charter commission. Eight of the individuals serving on the commission must be district parents.  Commission members must be named within 30 days of May 22, the date when nearly 25,000 petition signatures supporting Home-Rule were verified.

Once appointed, the commission has up to a year to complete its work.

The online application for those interested in joining the commission can be found here.
