dfw DISD Home Rule Commission Gets To WorkBest Young Athlete In DFW?

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM)- The group of parents, teachers, and community leaders that make up Dallas ISD’s Home Rule commission will hold its first meeting Monday evening.

The 15-member commission will meet have a year to draft a charter or a road map for the district, which would allow the district to operate separate from state rules.

Monday’s meeting, scheduled for 5:30, marks the first time the entire commission, including 4 teachers and 11 other community members, have had a chance to meet after a rocky start to the Home Rule process.

Alliance AFT took the DISD to court in attempt to block the commission from beginning its work, claiming the selection of the teachers for the commission was illegal.

A judge denied to issue an injunction, which allowed the process to continue.

The initial Home Rule petition was signed by some 26,000 people.

Voters will have an opportunity to vote on the charter if and when it is completed.
